Today evening, artistes in Kenya will hold a concert dubbed ‘Freedom Concert’ to stand with incarcerated Ugandan legislator, also singer, Bobi Wine who was arrested on Monday 13th August 2018.
Since Bobi Wine’s arrest, the country has been taken up by riots and social media went awash with the #FreeBobiWine hashtag. Ugandans have played their part in ensuring that their voice as per the cause is heard and Kenyans have picked up on it with vigor.
Kenyans on the Uganda-Kenya border in Busia demonstrated at the start of this week. This was all in addition to their activity on social media as they join Ugandans in the fight for Bobi Wine’s freedom.
As if that is not enough, Kenyan artistes are taking it all a notch higher by organizing a free concert for whoever will care to join the movement later in the evening.
The concert is set to take place from 4pm to 7pm at Pawa 254 in Nairobi. It is also reported that the free concert will be followed with a peaceful protest tomorrow.
