The FASTOBSERVER POLITICS | NUP party presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine’s woes with the security forces are far from over yet after he was again frustrated and held in one position for 7 hours on Friday before he was escorted out of Lira throughout the night.
Bobi Wine was blocked at about 13:00hrs as he advanced to Alebtong district where he was to hold a campaign rally.
Security forces heavily clutched on their rifles held Bobi Wine and his crew on the road for over 7 hours before they could tow his vehicle out of Lira to Kitgum.
Bobi and his crew say they were out of stock for feeding and other essentials to take them through the night.
“We did not eat at night. We were rather fed on police batons,” one of the crew members tells this site. “It is one of the worst moments of my life. Ugandans must rise and fight for their country,” he urged.
