The National Unity Platform principal Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine’s bullet proof car has been taken to URA offices in Nakawa for re inspection.
The car was this morning taken by Kyagulanyi’s legal following the Authority’s letter directing the lawyers to have their client’s car taken to be re inspected.
In a letter dated April 8, to Kyagulanyi, URA demanded that he presents the bullet-proof car today.
The latest directive followed a recent ruling of the High Court in Kampala in which the judge dismissed Bobi Wine application that sought to block the said tax re-evaluation of his car.
“Further reference is made to our earlier communication to your client Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert to voluntarily deliver motor vehicle, Toyota Land Cruiser, UBJ 667F to URA for re-evaluation exercise. You subsequently, sued URA seeking orders to stop going ahead to re-verify the said motor vehicle and your application seeking the said orders was dismissed on the 6th April, 2021,” the URA letter reads in part. The letter was addressed to Bobi Wine lawyers of Wameli and Company Advocates.
Today, Kyagulanyi legal team led by counsel Anthony Wameli complied to the directives and taken the vehicle for re inspection. This is a developing story and more details follow in our subsequent reports.
