KAMPALA. Bobi Wine’s Kenyan ally Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino is coordinating protests in the Kenyan capital Nairobi to show solidarity to his Ugandan fellow MP.
The demonstrators plan to march from Freedom Corner at Uhuru Park, Nairobi and they plan to march to the Uganda Commissioner's House.
According to our sources, the demonstrators plan to kick off the protests peacefully but degenerate into chaos that will result in the burning of the Ugandan Embassy in Kenya.
While the protests erupt in Nairobi, more protests like those seen last week are expected in Kampala.
Owino who was recently charged with attempted murder after shooting a club DJ has held virtual meetings with South Africa’s Julius Malema and two other unidentified opposition politicians from Ghana. The virtual meeting was also attended by five Americans while the rest were Ugandans and Kenyans.
The meeting was aimed at mobilizing resources to facilitate the demonstrations scheduled for Wednesday 25th November.
One of the sources that attended the meeting told the Kampala Post the group expects cash contribution from Malema, the American group, and other sources in Ghana.
According to our sources, Babu Owino is coordinating all the activities including mobilization of resources and the hooligans that will take part in the riots.
Last week, the Police arrested the National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi in Luuka district after he declined to follow campaign guidelines aimed at containing the spread of the deadly COVID-19.
Police accused Mr. Kyagulanyi of mobilizing masses to gather for his rallies and processions in total disregard of Covid-19 SOPs.
Following Bobi Wine’s arrest, violent protests erupted in various urban towns as youth burnt roads and attacked innocent Ugandans dressed in yellow. Others blocked roads and attempted to burn vehicles especially from western Uganda.
Kyagulanyi who was presented in the Iganga Magistrate’s court on Friday was charged with doing an act likely to spread infectious diseases, under section 171 of the Penal Code Act.
He was released on condition that while conducting his presidential campaigns he will strictly follow the Standard Operating Procedures aimed at stopping the spread of COViD-19.
Who is Babu Owino
Babu Owino is known to Ugandans after declaring his support for Kyadondo East legislator Bobi Wine and organizing protests against Uganda in his Country-Kenya following the arrest of Bobi Wine after his supporters smashed one of president Museveni’s cars in Arua.
The controversial Kenyan legislator was earlier this year arrested and detained after shooting DJ Felix Orinda, popularly known as DJ Evolve, at B Club in Kilimani, Nairobi.
CCTV footage from the club showed Owino, a former University of Nairobi student leader, shooting the DJ, while smoking shisha, and surrounded by his friends – including a lady who was seated just next to him.
