KAMPALA. Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) has safely been delivered at his home in Magere, Wakiso District.

Government Spokesperson and Media Centre Executive Director, Ofwono Opondo said in a short statement, posted on social media, "From Entebbe Airport, Police has delivered Kyagulanyi safely in his home at Magere, Wakiso District. We want to thank Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi for easily cooperating with law enforcement officers at Entebbe Airport, who provided him with a chauffeur driven car, escorts and traffic clearance to Magere.”

“For avoidance of any doubt Hon. Kyagulanyi did not attempt to resist police request to escort him home,” Opondo added.

Kyagulanyi who has been in the United States of America for treatment, landed at Entebbe Airport this afternoon aboard Kenya Airways flight. He was eventually escorted away by Police.

Police Spokesperson Emilian Kayima, who had earlier on Wednesday urged the MP to respect laws of Uganda on his return to Uganda, also thanked him for cooperating with Police.

“We wish to thank him (Bobi Wine) for cooperating with the Police at Entebbe Airport that provided him with transport, escort and a lead car to his home. We equally thank members of the public for having adhered to the set security guidelines issued yesterday,” Kayima said in a statement issued shortly after Bobi Wine’s arrival.

Among the guidelines, police banned procession and rallies as supporters welcomed the legislator. The police said this was to avoid inconvenience to users of the busy Entebbe road. Bobi Wine flew abroad about three weeks ago for treatment following injuries sustained during the Arua campaign fracas on August 13.

No Journalist Arrested

On reports of arrest of some journalists, Kayima said, “this is absolutely not true.”

“Some of them (journalists) were questioned in accordance with the set guidelines. All are free and going about their lawful business normally,” he explained.
