Singer Bobi Wine is at logger heads with his long time partners Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS) after he claimed and drove away a Toyota Tundra pick-up Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS) claims should be impounded for tax defaulting.
Apparently Bobi Wine a.k.a Robert Kyagulanyi on Wednesday drove the Tundra with a red registration number plate UAT 416K from the Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department (CIID) at Kibuli amid protests from the URCS.
The Tundra had been parked at Kibuli after it was impounded on suspicion of tax evasion. The Tundra was part of a consignment of suspected smuggled goods that a team of Police and Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) officials found at Nataka’s home.
According to the New Vision, the Tundra’s Bill of Lading had URCS as the importer. However the singer claims he has imported the car and only asked URCS to help him with a lift in one of their containers to Uganda. Sources said the CIID officer, Abbey Muhoozi, who was in charge of the case involving the vehicle told URCS that he had got orders from the Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura, to release the Tundra. Attempts to get a comment from Police were futile.
“Is there anything wrong being a friend of a former secretary General? Red Cross even owes me sh43m but when I talked to that new Secretary General (Odur), he said that was trash.” Bobi Wine said
