Bobi Wine documentary lands Ugandan journalist in court

A Ugandan journalist was on Wednesday (04.03.20) charged by a Kampala court with illegal assembly in connection with capturing a documentary of a song being composed by presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine.


Mr Moses Bwayo, who was under a contract with a UK-based production company, Southern Films, is accused alongside eight others, Uganda’s Daily Monitor reports.

While appearing in a session presided over by magistrate Jude Okurut, they denied charges of unlawful assembly.

Police upon arresting Bwayo on February 24, took him to Kabalagala Police Station, where he was detained until February 26 when he was released on police bond. The video cameras he was using were also impounded by police.

Last week, Mr Patrick Onyango, the police spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan area, told Daily Monitor that: “They were arrested because of shooting a music video around Nsambya. They were inconveniencing the residents as they moved in the middle of the road without police guidance or clearance. The area DPC called them and because they were big in number, some fled but the police managed to arrest 10 of them.”

The trial magistrate declined to handle their bail application as it was approaching court closing time and adjourned the matter to March 6th 2020, before remanding the accused persons to Luzira prison.
