That Bobi Wine has a monster bulletproof car is not going down well with the regime and the powers that be have teed off an investigation to establish how the NUP leader managed to secure the care without the security knowing.
And it looks like the first victims of these investigations will be Uganda Revenue Authority who received the statutory taxes and cleared the car to its owner who is now showing it off like a trophy.
Now media reports are revealing that some officials at URA will lose their jobs while others have been ordered to follow the “trail” of the car. PML Daily reports that the trail will include following up on the firm through which it was imported, the customs officers and the clearing and forwarding firm that handled the car.
In a Facebook post upon receiving and unveiling the car to the public, Bobi Wine said the car procured using money fundraised by his comrades. “There is a group of comrades who kick-started a fundraising campaign for a bulletproof vehicle,”
“These comrades informed me of their plan, but I thought it was an uphill task, given how expensive it is. A few weeks ago, these comrades surprised me when they informed me that they had succeeded in raising enough money for the vehicle, and here it is. I can’t THANK YOU enough,” Bobi Wine said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
