Musician-turned-politician, Bobi Wine, is facing the threat of eviction from his business premises. According to available information, Bobi Wine has been operating from the disputed land in the murky slums of Kamwokya where he owns Ssemakokiro Plaza and music recording studios.
The landlord has accused Bobi Wine and others of trespass and has consequently issued them with a seven-day eviction notice. But now, the area landlord M/s Pearl Hope Investments Limited, through Lubega, Matovu and Company advocates, in a letter dated March 11, 2019, notified Bobi Wine and others (in separate letters) about the planned eviction.
“You went ahead and demolished the old premises thereon. You erected Ssemakokiro Plaza on the land wherein you have your recording studios and other activities. As you may appreciate, you are purely a trespasser on our client’s land, our client on purely humanitarian grounds gives you a notice of seven days within which you should remove your developments as they constitute a nuisance therein,” the letter addressed to the MP reads in part.
BY press time, Bobi Wine, who also serves as the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, was still silent but we hope he is yet to officially respond to these accusations.
