Ugandan opposition leader Bobi Wine real name Robert Kyagulanyi plunged into trouble over his claimed bullet-proof car as reported by the Daily Monitor newspaper.


The vehicle has drawn the gestures of the Ugandan authorities, with the Ugandan Revenue Authority (URA) saying its information had been misrepresented and thus undervalued.


The URA has therefore wanted to recollect the vehicle for re-inspection and re-evaluation.


Bobi refused to hand over the vehicle saying recalling it is not backed by the Ugandan laws.

“Much as it is true you have the powers under section 236(d) of the EAC Customs Management Act to examine goods, you don’t have automatic powers to re-examine goods which were in your custody (warehouse), which were examined, assessed for tax, the tax fully paid and the goods released to the owner/taxpayer,” it said.

The disputed car initially imported and registered in Kenya last year and then re-imported to Uganda through the Busia border.

In a post on 21 February, Mr Kyagulanyi alleged that the Toyota Land Cruiser had been donated to him by his friends and supporters in Uganda and abroad.
