Visit efforts by the US ambassador H.E Natalie .E. Brown to the residence of the forcefully incarcerated Ugandan presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine have been frustrated by the armed forces.
According to a social media statement and credible reports from people who witnessed the incident, H.E Natalie was ordered to leave the gate of Hon. Kyagulanyi as she tried to negotiate her entry to Magere to hold talks with the 38 year old musician cum politician.
Bobi Wine confirmed the incident in a statement he just published on his Facebook.
“This afternoon, the US ambassador to Uganda made an effort to visit me but was turned away from my gate by the soldiers who have held me and my wife captive for the last five days,” Bobi posted.
An official at the US embassy in Kampala too confirmed the incident in a phone call engagement with this site but declined to be named. “Yes, we regrettably confirm that Her Excellence was blocked from meeting Hon. Kyagulanyi,” he said. “We will issue a comment to that regard but for now I’m not authorized to say more than this,” he added before he hang up.
