Bobi Wine asked to declare armoured vehicle by IGG

The Inspectorate of Government (IG) has given National Unity Platform president Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, until March 31 to explain whether his recently acquired armoured vehicle is a donation or one of his assets.

Addressing journalists and editors during a breakfast meeting yesterday, Ms Annet Twine, the director of the Leadership Code at IG, said like all other leaders, Mr Kyagulanyi, who is a political party head and a Member of Parliament, is required under Section 10 of the Leadership Code Act, to declare all his wealth.

“He still has time to make a declaration. Under section 10 of the Leadership Code, when you receive a gift in the course of your duties, you have to declare it. We shall wait until he submits his declaration and see how he explains how he got it,” she said, adding that if it is a donation, there is a provision for him to explain how he came to own and it can be verified.

Whereas Bobi Wine’s contest for government office didn’t succeed, the National Unity Platform (NUP) President is required to declare his wealth by the mere fact that he is still an MP up to May.

A self-registration module has been established and this will enable leaders who are declaring for the first time to register themselves into the system.

Bobi Wine, last week unveiled his brand-new armored SUV and Cruiser V8, registered UBJ 667F, worth over Ugx. 1b.

The car has been talk of town ever since it arrived in the country.

We will keep you posted.
