President Yoweri Museveni has opened the lid on the Bobi Wine encounter with his security Special Forces Command in Arua.
President Museveni was Friday passing out 4809 Police trainees. They include Probation Police Constables and Assistant Inspectors of Police at Kabalye Police Training School in Masindi.
Museveni admitted that the National Unity President and member of parliament Kyadondo East Robert Kyagulanyi. He said Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine tried to fight SFC.
The President’s narration as reproduced from UBC is below.
Bobi Wine tried to fight with security people. I think they beat him a bit. And then they came and said a member of parliament was beaten!
And then I said let me study how he was beaten. Then when I studied, I found out the man had been beaten properly. And in the right way.
This was because SFC who are not police minded, But some how they managed to beat him properly, I was actually surprised.
When they went to the room where this member was, where they caused a problem the day before. When they attacked, he (Bobi) tried to box them. They also boxed them until they subdued them. And they jailed them.
I was surprised these people acted professionally. And beyond self defence, they did not beat. So it was in order.
ICYM: President Museveni openly tells Police trainees that the SFC beat Bobi Wine, "he was beaten properly, in the right way", while in Arua. Over 4000 Police officers were passed out after completing training at the Kabalye training School in Masindi on Friday.
