There is heavy joint security deployment security at One Love Beach, Busabala, to stop a planned music concert by the Kyandondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
The deployment includes security personnel from Uganda People's Defense Forces-UPDF, Military Police- MP, Local Defense Unit - LDUs and Police Field Force Unit – FFU, under the command of the Kampala South Regional Police Commander–RPC, Paul Kakamba and Katwe Division Police Commander-DPC, Frantile Lwamusai.
Some of the security officers backed with armoured vehicles, have strategically deployed on all roads leading to One Love Beach. Others are manning the entrance to One Love Beach ready to turn away whoever tries to access it.
In a brief engagement with Uganda Radio Network-URN, Lwamusai described the security deployment as normal, saying there is nothing to worry about.
On Tuesday evening, the Inspector General of Police, Martins Okoth Ochola cancelled Bobi Wine’s concert dubbed “Osobola” saying his plans fell short of Crowd Control and evacuation protocols in case of an emergency and adequate security for the big number of revellers.
This isn’t the first time police are blocking a music concert organised by Bobi Wine.
On Easter Monday this year, police stopped Bobi Wine's concert on grounds that he had failed to comply with the guidelines. The artist cum legislator has since sued police for blocking his music concerts since he joined active politics.
