Police in Entebbe are currently in talks with Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine in Entebbe to stop him from leading a process from Entebbe to his home in Gayaza.

Kyagulanyi was today Friday coming from the United States in a global conference he was invited to by Microsoft boss, Bill Gates.

According to Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, Bobi Wine wanted to “address gatherings and come in a procession.”

But “the police are having a conversation with him to defer that.”

A few minutes ago, his fans shared videos of some of the scenes in Entebbe, with one them showing a tow truck driver who, on request by police, refused to tow Bobi Wine’s vehicle.

Fans celebrated the scene.

The video was shared by renowned social media blogger, Ashburg Katto, who is a diehard of Bobi Wine.

The police who are not yet sure sure of the outcomes of the meeting are hoping he complies.

“We hope he will see our point of view and comply to avoid unnecessary and unplanned traffic management which can result in chaos and disorder plus crime from other characters than might exploit that loophole,” wrote Kayima.

It should be recalled that yesterday Uganda was rocked with an unbecoming political climate, sparking nationwide protests upcountry, in universities, and even at parliament as Ugandans showed their hatred for amendment of the Age Limit bill.

Politians like Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, DP’s Nobert Mao, and FDC’s Doreen Nyanjura were arrested.

Police has Friday revealed that the 48 suspects arrested in the Thursday demonstrations against the planned amendment of Article 102(b) that disqualifies anyone above 75 years and below 35 year from contesting for presidency will next week be taken to court.

Of the 48, 25 are students of Makerere University who are currently detained at Wandegeya Police Division, while others were at Kampala Central Police Station (CPS).

Police spokesperson, Asan Kasingye is yet to get details on the number of protesters arrested in various parts of the country.
