EC Speaks Out On Bobi Arrest

The electoral commission has warned the Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi and other candidates intending to conduct consultations ahead of 2021 election to always fulfill other obligations required of them by police.

This followed police arresting Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine after colliding with him at the venue where he was slated to conduct his first meeting from in Gayaza.

The EC spokesperson Jothan Taremwa says that, much as they cleared Bobi Wine to conduct his consultations, he was slated to observe other obligation by security agencies.

On December 3, 2019, Bobiwine wrote to the Electoral Commission (EC) declaring his intention to contest for presidency in 2021, against President Yoweri Museveni.

In his letter to the EC titled RE: NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CONDUCT CONSULTATION, Bobi Wine notified the EC that he is to kickoff nationwide consultations among his People Power supporters and other Ugandans across the country.

Thus the Commission (EC) recently cleared Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to carry out consultations across the country as part of his bid to stand as a presidential candidate in 2021

“He is free to carry out his consultations as long as they don’t turn into political rallies,” said Jonathan Taremwa the Electoral Commission spokesperson.

However, the EC also cautioned Kyagulanyi to conduct his consultations within the law. He is warned against distributing any campaign material and advised seeking permission from the police and local council leaders for any area he wants to carry out the consultations.
