The National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has said that dictators will only respect the rule of law if they are put under pressure over their misdeeds.
Kyagulanyi made the remarks after he was arrested while leading a team of NUP elected members of parliament in a peaceful protest at the Constitutional Square in Kampala.
Kyagulanyi was protesting over the missing Ugandans who were arrested during the last general election.
He was later released without charge and driven to his home which he says is surrounded by police and soldiers.
On Sunday, Bobi Wine called on his supporters to protest peacefully against what he calls a rigged election.
He’s also demanding that security forces explain where their missing colleagues are. In a televised address, President Yoweri Museveni accused Bobi Wine’s party of trying to fix the election.
Since Kyagulanyi called for peaceful demonstrations in protests against President Museveni’s victory in the January 14 polls, security agencies have conducted a number of operations to ensure no one heeds his call.
Police said whereas no one can be stopped from holding a peaceful protest, Kyagulanyi and his team ought to work out a plan with police to avoid any eventualities.
