The Magistrate Court in Mbale has postponed the hearing of the Bobi Wine’s case against the Inspector General of Police, Attorney General to 26th August 2020 after respondents declined to appear for hearing on Wednesday.

National Unity Platform (NUP) President Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi sued the Attorney General, Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola, Elgon Region Police Commander Wesley Nganizi, Mbale Resident District Commissioner Hajji Suleiman Barasa Ogajo, Mbale District Police Commander Fred Ahimbisibwe, Mbale District Internal Security Officer Lt. George Mwonda and Office In Charge Mbale Central Police Station Arafat Kato for blocking him from appearing on a radio talk show at BCU FM Mbale on 8 August 2020.

The case was set to be heard on Wednesday at Mbale high court but the entire respondent didn’t appear in the dock and this forced the magistrate to adjourn the hearing to 26 August, ordering the state attorney to ensure that the accused appear for cross examining.

Upon leaving the Mbale High Court premises, Mbale residents tried to wave at Bobi Wine but police used teargas and live bullets to disperse them.
