Kyadindo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu commonly known as Bobi Wine has gone to the High court over a ban imposed on his musical shows by the Uganda Police force.
Bobi Wine says that he earns a living through music and live performances until on 8th /October 2017 when police banned his shows while quoting security concerns something Bobi Wine claims is in blatant violation of his right to work and freedoms to speech, liberty and movement.
Through renowned Human rights lawyer Ladislous Rwakafuuzi , Bobi Wine says he has since lost 300 million shillings for his cancelled shows at Colline Hotel Mukono, Kamuli, Busoga and in Kasese district where he had been invited and paid 20 million by his fellow legislator Jackson Mbaju to perform for his supporters in Busongora South County.
The banned shows were supposed to take place between 12th-21st /October 2017 respectively.
According to the plaint, the claimed 300 million shillings arise out of partial payments music promoters had made to Bobi Wine and numerous advertisements inform of banners and posters that were plucked down by police men and crime preventers.
Now Bobi Wine seeks prohibition orders against the Attorney General and the Kampala Metropolitan police commander Frank Mesigwa whom he accuses of threatening to end his music career from permanently interfering in his stage performances.
Bobi Wine says unless court intervenes in his situation, his livelihood and that of his family hang in jeopardy.
The case file has been allocated to Justice Henriata Woloya who will communicate the hearing date by Monday next week.
