BOBI WINE FINALLY CLEARED LEAVES FOR US

BY Ntale Younus

The Embattled Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has been finally cleared by police to travel to the US for medical treatment.

Bobi Wine was on Thursday evening blocked by police from traveling out of the country on allegations that the MP was yet to be cleared pending other charges.

Bobi Wine was bundled into a waiting police ambulance and driven to Mulago national referral hospital - Kiruddu where he was put under police custody on Level 7 room 7B1.

Bobi wine was blocked together with his counterpart Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake on similar grounds and later taken to Kirudu government facility awaiting clearance by the Uganda Medical Board.

UTN later learnt that Bobi was cleared to travel following a closed door meeting held with Members of the Uganda Medical Board.

The meeting which was attended by the executive director Mulago hospital Dr Byarugaba Baterana, Bobi Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi resolved that Bobi is cleared for travel following the board's recommendation.

Bobi Wine's lawyer Asuman Basalirwa confirmed the meeting of his client and the Medical Board; saying the doctors held a conversation with Bobi.

There emerged Protests in the city center and Kamwokya over Bobi's re-arrest on Friday but were quickly contained by joint security forces of the army and police personnel.

There are however unanswered questions on the life of Mityana municipality MP Francis Zaake who is also in critical condition. MP Zaake was also blocked from travelling to India to seek further treatment. However, the members of the Medical Board did not check on him following alleged refusal by the legislator to be treated by Doctors from Kirudu Hospital.

Zaake is also admitted at the same hospital. The duo were brutally buttered on the eve of Arua Municipality by-elections on 13 August 2018 by presidential guards on allegations of stoning President Yoweri Museveni's motorcade.

We have learnt that the Medical Board received Zaake's file on Wednesday and has since been waiting for a medical examination report by experts from Mulago to make a decision.
