Bobi Wine Cries Out To EC Chair Byabakama
By: Denis Kayongo. Bobi Wine Cries Out Loud To EC Chair Byabakama After Police Blocks Him From Appearing On Radio.
Kyadondo East member of Parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi has questioned the legitimacy of the ongoing scientific campaigns after Police in Hoima blocked him from appearing on a local Radio station even after paying the one million shilling required of him to go live on air.
After being left frustrated by Police’s unlawful actions yesterday evening, Bobi Wine to his official Facebook page and asked the chairman of the Electoral commission Justice Simon Byabakama to come out and openly explain the true meaning of digital campaign.
The singing legislator couldn’t understand why Police would stop a candidate from appearing on a Radio station yet it was lawfully agreed that all presidential aspirants would be using the media to campaign.
Yesterday, we booked and paid to appear on Spice FM radio station in Hoima District. As soon as we got to the station this morning and started introducing ourselves, the police and military cordoned off the building and forcefully ejected us out of the radio station. We asked why they were doing this, and their answer was “orders from above”. So far, we have been blocked from addressing Ugandans on thirteen radio stations across the country.
Mr. Byabakama and the Electoral Commission must tell us what the meaning of a digital campaign is, when we are not allowed on radio stations. Above all, Mr. Tibuhaburwa and his friends are right to be scared. Ugandans who wondered why we have been calling him the worst coward in history can now see for themselves what we have been saying.
To you people of Hoima and Bunyoro generally, the time is now to regain our freedom. And I thank you for the great reception you are giving us everywhere in the midst of great intimidation” Bobi Wine posted after being blocked from appearing on Radio.
