Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, popularly known as Bobi Wine has run to court over a ban imposed on his musical shows by the Uganda Police force.

He has filed a complaint against Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, Frank Mwesigwa and the Attorney General (AG), at the Civil Division of the High Court in Kampala.

Bobi Wine seeks prohibition orders against the duo whom he accuses of threatening to end his music career from permanently interfering in his stage performances and damages for interfering with his constitutional rights.

Through Rwakafuuzi and Company Advocates, Bobi Wine contends that  all his life he has been earning  a living through  live music performances until on October 8, 2017 when police banned his shows, citing security concerns something Bobi Wine claims is in violation of his right to work and freedoms to speech, liberty  and movement.

He claims that since then he has lost sh300m for his cancelled shows at Colline Hotel Mukono, Kamuli, Busoga and in Kasese district where he had been invited and paid 20 million by his fellow legislator Jackson Mbaju to perform for his supporters in Busongora South County.

The case file has been allocated to Justice Henriata Woloya who will communicate the hearing date by Monday next week.
