Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine was among those invited for the prayer meeting but has been denied access to the premises.
“Our Clan head and most elderly people who were in attendance were severely affected.” Bobi Wine lamented.”
” I and other clan members including Prof. Dumba Ssentamu have been blocked from accessing the venue,” he further complained.
Many young people found at the venue were arrested and we’re have since learned that they’re being held at Mityana Police.
Bobi Wine condemned polices acts of brutalizing cultural institutions and their leaders.
“We strongly condemn this blatant disrespect of our culture and cultural institutions by the security forces.” He said.
