Presidential hopeful Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert alias Bobi Wine of the NUP party has named and shamed the police boss who nearly killed him as he approached Bugiri on Monday where he was to feature as per his campaign schedule.
Bobi identifies the errant police boss as Frank Mwesigwa who holds a past history of violence and aggravated human rights abuse in his tenure during the Kayihura reign as IGP. Bobi Wine in the Facebook post narrates his ordeal as detailed from the piece sourced online below;
Today after we received a massive welcome from the people of Mayuge and Iganga, a one Frank Mwesigwa (yes, that one) decided to illegally block our scheduled campaign meeting in Bugiri. He ordered the visibly hungry and miserable police officers and UPDF sodiers to tear gas and beat innocent citizens. Many people who were already at the venue of our meeting were arrested while many were wounded. We continue to put these brutal officers on notice. There will be a time when you will personally answer for all these crimes that you are committing in the name of maintaining Museveni’s life presidency.
We consequently did not address the people of Bugiri but the welcome we received from them was satisfying enough. They can do whatever but the revolution is irreversible.
