Omah Lay’s Arrest Isn’t About COVID – Ugandan Political Leader Bobi Wine

Ugandan politician, singer, actor, and businessman Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, known by his stage name Bobi Wine has alleged the arrest of Nigerian musicians Omah Lay And Tems is not about COVID-19 as reported by the Ugandan Police.

The vociferous singer who currently serves as Member of Parliament for Kyadondo County East constituency in Wakiso District, in Uganda’s Central Region in a tweet stated the arrest was rather “an act of shame by a corrupt regime that operates on double standards.”

He questioned why the artists would be arrested when they “obtained work permits & performed under police protection!”

He backed his claim by sharing photos of a street concert organized by “pro-Museveni artists” who were not arrested or molested.

He then joined the call to free Omah Lay with the hashtag #FreeOmahLay

Truth is #OmahLay‘s arrest isn’t about COVID. No! It’s an act of shame by a corrupt regime that operates on double standards. He obtained a work permit & performed under police protection! Why arrest him? This as pro-Museveni artists stage street concerts unmolested! #FreeOmahLay

On the night of December 12, 2020, Omah Lay and Tems performed at The Big Brunch, held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Rd, Kampala, Uganda which triggered their arrest the following day.

They were charged to court and made an appearance on Monday, December 2020,  after which they were remanded till Wednesday, December 16, 2020.
