A squadron of armed uniformed and plain clothed policemen raided 2021 Presidential contender Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s offices in Kamwokya, a Kampala suburb, on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.
According to eyewitnesses at the scene, the police who raided the NUP offices early Wednesday morning, without prior warning, have since arrested several People Power supporters who were found m0anning the offices, and seized thousands of documents among them NUP nomination lists, People Power red berets, T-shirts, badges and other attires.
Commenting about the incident, NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi tweeted thus;
“It’s interesting what fear does to people. It causes them to panic and do despicable things. Uganda’s regime is in fear, it’s scared of Ugandans who are hungry for change,but whatever evil they do only emboldens us. Nothing,and I mean nothing, can stop an idea whose time has come!”

By press time the police had not yet revealed why the raided the NUP offices, what they were investigating and how many people had been arrested, although they were still heavily deployed at the premises.
Bobi Wine, who is also the Kyadondo East legislator, is yet to issue an official statement about the matter and we shall bring you updates as soon as he speaks out.
He however tweeted about the raid thus; “The military and police just raided our head office in Kamwokya. They have broken into offices and taken away valuable documents and other items. Some comrades have been injured. The partisanship of security agencies ahead of the election is stinking.”
