Electoral Commission Tells Bobi Wine To Take Officers To Court

During his visit to the Electoral Commission yesterday, Hon. Kyagulanyi was told to sue the officers if they continue to interfere with his campaigns. The chairperson of the EC, Justice Simon Byabakama was the one who gave Bobi Wine the go-ahead saying there is no one above the law.

‘’There is no one above the law. There is a need to know that Mr. Kyagulanyi is a presidential candidate so if these people come and pull him out of the radio, he is free to sue them so that the long hand of the law catches up with the perpetrators,’’ Justice Byabakama told the press yesterday.

Justice Byabakama’s team that attended the meeting yesterday included the Electoral Commission director of operations, Ms. Kamugisha Baabo. EC head of security Grace Nakirayi also attended in person among others and some also attended through zoom.

Mr. Kyagulanyi was escorted by his party secretary-general, David Lewis Rubongoya, party spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi among others.

During the meeting, Hon. Kyagulanyi talked about the difficulties they have been facing during their campaign trail. A source that attended the meeting said that Bobi Wine wanted the EC to make a formal statement about the recent killings during the Bobi Wine protests.

He also wanted answers over the blocked campaigns and radio talk shows.

According to other reports, Bobi Wine wanted an extension on his campaign trail citing the lost time while in police custody.

Justice Byabakama reportedly assured Bobi Wine that he would hold a meeting with the security, especially police leaders. He said the aim of this meeting will be to talk about the issue of brutality.

However, when the issue of the army involvement came up, Justice Byabakama reportedly stayed silent.
