    Police Launch Investigation into Bobi Wine's Alleged Hate Speech and Sectarianism
    • September 11, 2023 • 11 months ago

    In a recent development, Uganda Police have initiated an investigation into allegations of hate speech and sectarianism against Robert Kyagulanyi, widely known as Bobi Wine, the leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP). The allegations stem from a speech delivered by Kyagulanyi during one of his recent rallies in Luweero.

    Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, confirmed the commencement of the investigation on Monday, stating that the Criminal Investigation Directorate (CID) had opened a general inquiry into the matter. Enanga revealed that the CID is actively gathering statements and scouring social media for footage and utterances made by Kyagulanyi during the controversial rally.

    During the rally at Kasana grounds in Luweero, Kyagulanyi made remarks in Luganda, calling on "Fellow Baganda to rise up and fight for their ancestors." He went on to criticize President Yoweri Museveni, asserting, "Museveni thinks he is going to build his dynasty on the land of our ancestors in Buganda. That will not happen."

    The video of Kyagulanyi's speech quickly went viral, drawing significant attention on social media platforms. Many members of the public, particularly on social media, accused him of inciting tribalism and hate speech.

    In response to these allegations, Police spokesperson Fred Enanga stated that the investigation is still in its initial stages. The CID is actively combing through social media and other sources to collect evidence related to Kyagulanyi's alleged hate speech and sectarian remarks. Once the investigation is completed, the police will seek the opinion of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on how to proceed with the matter.

    The investigation has sparked a heated debate in Ugandan political circles, with supporters of Kyagulanyi defending his right to free speech, while critics argue that such remarks can incite ethnic tensions and should be subject to legal scrutiny.

    As the investigation unfolds, it remains to be seen how the legal process will handle these allegations against Bobi Wine, a prominent opposition figure in Ugandan politics.
