Bobi Wine’s wife also indicated that Robert Kyagulanyi was beaten inside the ambulance before being dumped at Kirudu Hospital.

“He told me that as soon as they closed the ambulance doors, he was again brutally beaten in front of a government doctor.

They switched off the lights in the ambulance and started battering him! Bobi is now back in pain and he is dumped at Kiruddu hospital. He has missed his flight and time is running out,” she said.

Bobi Wine’s lawyer Robert Amsterdam has condemned the move saying the MP committed no crime and didn’t deserve such treatment as he had valid reasons to travel through the airport.

Another MP, Zaake Francis was also blocked at the same airport from travelling to India for further treatment.

Police sources have indicated that the MPs were blocked from travelling abroad as they might return to the country with reports showing injuries which are not real.
