Bobi Wine is demanding the release of people kidnapped by security forces whether dead or alive. He said this yesterday at a protest with a few people in downtown.
“Gen. Museveni must bring back our people dead or alive. The right to protest is embedded within our Constitution. A Ugandan who participates in a peaceful demonstration commits no offence,” he said
Bobi Wine noted that dictators only respect rule of law when put under pressure.
“Even if the police brutally arrested them, we are sure that ultimately they will be free because they broke no law and therefore committed no crime. Dictators like Museveni only respect the law if put under pressure,”
The National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi has been calling upon people to protest peacefully. However, this has not yielded because the police have been very alert on this. They say Kyagulanyi has not yet requested permission as the law demands.
It is not only announcing (peaceful protests) but work with police to give them your plan to ensure the peaceful assembly is not taken advantage of,” Fred Enanga said.
However, there are so many questions to ask ourselves. If Kyagulanyi made a request to the police to protest peacefully, would they have allowed him to? For so many times, he has tried to do things legally, it has always turned out to be a no and the rest we know is chaos all over. At this point, Kyagulanyi has probably lost hope in any legal procedures to do what he desires. This is why the chase and the run game may never end between NUP and the police.
