Bobi Wine Runs to Court After URA Recalls his Bullet Proof Vehicle

Former presidential candidate and NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has run to the High court seeking a permanent injunction against  the continued threats by the commissioner General of the Uganda Revenue Atihority from impounding  and re-examing his recently acquired  motorvehicle;  a Toyata Land cruiser ( UBJ  667F).

Kyagulanyi contends the acts of the commissioner General in  threatening to impound his vehicle are  an infringement of his guaranteed  constitutional rights to quietly enjoy and possess his property.

Bobi Wine said that  since his participation as a candidate in the recently concluded presidential election where NRM’s Museveni was declared winner , he has been a target by security and other government agencies thus forcing him to start  wearing  bullet proof jackets and headgears and hence further need to acquire such a car with special protection.

The NUP candidate who was returned second in the January polls also avers in his application that he currently uses the contentious car as his only means of transport because all his other vehicles such as the Tundura have either been impounded and parked at Arua Central Police station  or damaged by security forces beyond repair.

He therefore asks the Highcourt to intervene and order URA off his vehicle as re-posessing this car will not only render his  movements difficult but also will hinder him from  getting the protection he sought  for from this car , since  the tax body doesnot even specify how long it will take while re-examining the car.
His case file registered yesterday is yet to be allocated to a judge for hearing.
