Uganda politician, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, popularly referred to as Bobi Wine has disclosed the important reason Nigerian singer, Omah Lay was arrested.
Omah Lay and Tems were arrested and locked in Uganda prison for flouting the COVID-19 order.
Their arrest has since generated reactions from Nigerian celebrities and therefore the government.
However, Bobiwine reacting on his Twitter page, said Omah Lay wasn’t arrested due to COVID-19 rules, but due to an ‘act of shame by a corrupt regime with double standards.’
The serving Member of Parliament for Kyadondo County East constituency in Wakiso District, in Uganda’s Central Region, queried Omah Lay’s arrest, stressing that the singer had police protection during the concert.
His tweet read: “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 piece permit and performed under police protection! Why arrest him? this is often as pro-Museveni artists stage street concerts unmolested!”
