KAMPALA — The High Court has issued an order directing police and the military to vacate National Unity Platform (NUP) President Robert Kyagulanyi’s premises.
Justice Michael Elubu, who heads the court’s civil division, said that if the government had evidence against Bobi Wine, he should be charged in court and not “held unjustifiably at his home.”
Soldiers remain at the compound and Uganda’s military has a “history of defying court orders,” Musisi said. He added that they would petition the court for each soldier that remains to be held in contempt.
A spokesperson for the Uganda Police Force said the officers still at Bobi Wine’s home will vacate the premises.
“We are a law-abiding institution and do respect the High Court ruling.”
Kyagulanyi aka Bobi wine and his wife Barbie have been under house arrest since they voted on January 14, 2021.
The electoral commission announced Yoweri Kaguta Museveni winner of the poll. Museveni was announced the winner January 16th, with the EC saying he polled 5.85 million votes equivalent to 58.64 percent, while his closest challenger Bobi Wine of National Unity Platform (NUP) polled 3.48 million votes equivalent 34.83 percent.
