National Unity Platform (NUP) president Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine will appear in court on August 18 2020 for his hearing in his case against the police for blocking his radio talk show in Mbale last week.
The Police was deployed heavily to block Kyagulanyi and his team from accessing Bagisu Cooperative Union (BCU) FM premises on August 8th leading to running battles with People Power activists.
Now, through his legal team Kyagulanyi says the actions of the respondents, their agents and those who acted under them are not acceptable or demonstrably justifiable in a free and democratic society.
Kyagulanyi later tookit to his social media platform and posted;
“Yesterday, we filed a suit against the Attorney General, the Inspector General of Police, Mbale District RDC, the DPC of Mbale, the DISO as well as the OC station, Mbale Central Police Station. We want them to explain why we were blocked from appearing on Mbale BCU FM Radio last weekend.
We are going for the government as well as individual officers who are involved in actions of impunity against our people. Like we have consistently said, we shall use all avenues, domestic and international, to push for the rights of Ugandans.”
He wants the respondents to personally compensate him for the violation of his rights, pay punitive damages for their high handedness and fragrant breach of the law and all be personally liable for their action.
