A total of five grenades have gone off in and around Bobi Wine's residence in under a week with the latest happening on Tuesday morning. One of the blasts was right at the bedroom window of his son, Solomon Kampala, 12.

It should be recalled that today (Oct 3) is the day when the red ribbon campaign announced by the former Forum for Democratic Change leader, Dr. Kizza Besigye kicked off. The moment Bobi Wine was done with addressing the journalists on the extent of the blasts which fortunately did not hurt anyone except for the trauma, the Kyadondo East member of parliament hit the road in his black Tundra heading for town with a red ribbon on his head.

He was intercepted at Butete Gayaza road. Efforts of telling the police officers that he drives his car to police fell on deaf ears, he was led to a black tinted van and driven off to Nagalama police station.

He has just been released a few minutes back and this is what he noted on his wall;

"Today has been a very traumatizing day. After a bomb attack that almost killed my children, I got arrested and driven to Nagalama police together with my colleague MPs who had come home to see me. 

We have just now been released. This is all meant to torture me physically and psychologically so as to break my spirit. 
I want to tell you this again, My heart is hard like rock and I will never give up until Uganda is free.." 

Earlier on, the Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, and Ingrid Turinawe were arrested from home and in a taxi respectively. In town, Democratic Party's Mukasa Mbidde was dishing out flyers and red ribbons to the public, but when police caved in on him, he disappeared from the police in a crowded mall.
