In the suit filed at Mbale High court through Wameli and Co. Advocates, Hon Kyagulanyi says the government actions are not acceptable or demonstrably justifiable in a free and democratic society. The respondents to the suit are the Attorney General, Inspector General of Police, Martins Okoth Ochola, Elgon Region Police Commander, Wesely Nganizi, Mbale District Police Commander, Fred Ahimbisbwe, Mbale Resident Commissioner, Sulaiman Ogajjo Barasa.
The suit comes a few days after police blocked Kyagulanyi from appearing on a weekly political talk show on the Mbale city based BCU FM radio. Bobi Wine says they infringed on his right to freedom of the press and other media contrary to Article 29(1a), 43(2a) of the 1995 constitution.
Kyagulanyi also contends that the respondents violated his right to equity and freedom from discrimination contrary to article 21(1a) and 43(2a and c) of the constitution. He wants the respondents to personally compensate him for the violation of his rights, pay punitive damages for their high handedness and fragrant breach of the law.
