Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East MP has been banned by the Uganda Police from performing at live music concerts.
Police issued a warning to the ghetto president banning him from any live concert performances until investigations into his conduct at recent events are completed according to reports by Daily Monitor.
The order was issued by Kampala Metropolitan Police commander, Mr Fred Mwesigwa after responding to a request by Balunywa Promotions Ltd, an events company, to get police security ahead of Bobi Wine’s planned show at Colline Hotel in Mukono.
“Unfortunately we are not granting permission for the show because during the previous show at One Love Beach Busabala, he uttered words that are incitful (sic) to the public and he is now under investigations,” Mr Mwesigwa’s October 19 response to Balunywa Promotions Ltd, reads in part.

This is not a surprise since Bobi Wine is one of the few politicians behind the #Togikwato saga that have opposed the age limit bill and with these recent developments, its only seen as a move to try and choke down his efforts to air out his views.
“They have banned my shows and I cannot perform anywhere in this country. This is violating my rights and the reason they give me is because of the words I said during my show in Busabala last weekend,” Mr Kyagulanyi said.
After the recent bomb threats against him and with most of his shows being banned. Does Bobi stand a chance against the power machine? Will he survive through the hurdles continously throw at him? Time can only tell.
