Singer turned-politician Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, has been remanded till August 30, 2018 when his co-accused will also appear before the civilian court, in Gulu.
The Chief Magistrates Court in Gulu slapped the Kyadondo East MP with fresh charges related to treason.
Earlier on, Bobi Wine had breathed a relief of happiness after the General Court Martial in Gulu had dropped charges related to unlawful possession of firearms, but his joy was short lived when his lawyer Medard Lubega Ssegona alerted him that he had to head to the civilian court.
However the positive bit of the story is that Bobi Wine will now have access to his private doctors so as to be treated of his ailments he sustained following the gruesome torture he underwent during his arrest a week ago.
As the limping Bobi Wine clad in a black shirt with a Uganda flag scarf around his neck left the dock he shouted out loud his ‘People Power Our Power’ slogan that some of his colleagues replied to heavily.
Bobi together with other thirty two people who include MPs Kassiano Wadri, Gerald Karuhanga and Paul Mwiru among others that were last week also slapped with the same charges.
