CMI boss put on the spot over Bobi Wine travel blockage

Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) commander, Brig Abel Kandiho, was on Friday surrounded by protesters at Kisekka Market demanding that government lets Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine go for specialized treatment abroad.

Brig Kandiho who arrived at around mid-day was surrounded by youths who asked him to explain why the Police and the army had blocked Mr Kyagulanyi from going abroad for treatment.

“Do you want him dead? Tell us why you don’t him to be treated. We don’t have any problem with you but you should tell your man to leave Bobi Wine alone.

He has done nothing wrong,” the youth chanted as Brig Kandiho signaled to them to keep a safe distance.

Mr Kyagulanyi and MP Francis Zaake were on blocked on Thursday at Entebbe International Airport as they flew to US and India respectively for specialized treatment following the injuries they sustained during the Arua Municipality by-election fracas.

“Why are these shops closed?” Brig Kandiho asked soldiers and policemen who had manned entrances of buildings on Kisekka Market lane.

“Those police officers are the ones disturbing us. They have made our work difficult. They have even closed our shops. Chase them away because we want to work,” the crowd replied even before the security officers could answer Brig Kandiho.

The one star general attempted to get a briefing on the chaos from the security operatives but the crowd could not let him address the men in uniform. He was forced to board his land cruiser and move to the extreme end of the market.
