Despite the High Court ruling in favor of the National Unity Platform and their president Hon. Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine which ordered the security forces (both Military and Police) to vacate the singer turned politician’s home, soldiers remain stationed there.
Bobi Wine has been under house arrest at his home in Magere, Wakiso District since election day on January 14th with nobody allowed to access him.
The lawyers of the youthful politician took to the High Court on the January 21st the demand for the freedom of their party president. Court adjourned the case to January 25th, when it ruled in favor of the former presidential candidate and ordered security forces to vacate his premises.
By last evening, police and the army were still deployed at his residence in Magere Village, Kasangati Town Council, Wakiso District, despite court earlier ordering them to leave his home immediately.
In fact, military and police deployments had been reinforced and checkpoints on the road to his residence had also been increased.
Bobi Wine took to his social media to call out these atrocious acts by the security forces that seemed to defy the court orders. According to Bobi Wine, they should be waiting for “orders from above” which he said are the only orders they follow.
The residents of the Magere Village has also confirmed the stayed Police deployment despite the court order for them to vacate. Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said that they have to keep surveillance on Bobi Wine to ensure that he doesn’t break the law. Locals now required to carry area IDs
