    As the swearing in ceremony was ongoing, a raid manned by the Uganda’s security agencies including the army and Uganda police was also ongoing in Kamwokya on the Firebase Studios. The Uganda Police went ahead and arrested some members who belong to the Ghetto Crew which is headed by Bobi Wine.

    According to Bobi Wine’s post on Facebook, police raided the studios as he was having an interview with the USA Media the NewYork Times.

    Meanwhile, as the swearing in is going on, our rehearsal studio in Kamwokya was invaded by armed soldiers and police as young Firebase artists were rehearsing, and others were watching the swearing in on T.V. They were beaten and arrested (no charge yet). Even when I tried to explain that these youth were no harm to society and actually productive members of our community, nobody listened. They were bundled up to into a car, humiliated, and are now detained at Kira Road Police station.

    The arrested artists include: Red Aya, Dex, Wagi, and the CEO of Bigs promotion who had come to book these artists for a small gig. I was actually there doing an interview with New York Times when this happened.

    Bobi Wine went ahead and spit his raging anger towards the Uganda Police. “Many times I have worked with the Uganda Police to calm down riots and to create peace and stability in the ghetto, as well as to build a good relationship between the police and the common people… To the Uganda Police: next time you call me to calm down riots in the ghetto, please remember how you have treated our people… I MEAN, WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS THIS?”
