If you have been wondering how and when Bobi Wine’s car entered Uganda, the questions are already answered.
Bobi Wine claims he acquired new wheels, a bullet proof Toyota Land Cruiser courtesy of his fans and supporters here in the country and diaspora.
Security agencies started investigating the circumstances under which the said armoured vehicle was procured, transported and cleared by tax authorities.
But according to the latest and exclusive information the Northern Link Ug gathered, the Big Black Lexus entered from Busia border post on 5th November, 2020, registered under license plate, KCY 550X Logbook number K3323207K in the names of Fauz Khalid, a Kenyan national. The car was issued a C32 for temporary import too.
Apparently, on 8 Jan. 2021 Khalid through his agent, a one Sabiti Abel who is according to sources the Director of Real Time Global Cargo Handlers Uganda Ltd, requested a registration of the Bobi’s car using help tool Ref 210126637. Thereafter, they deposited it at the customs warehouse under cargo on 11 Jan 2021.
After a few days its verification was done, however the same ride had been apparently verified by the directorate of Interpol and international relations, a source tips us.
After clearing a whooping UGX 88,612,027 taxes, a source which considers anonymity confirms that the ride was released to Fauza Khalid with a number plate UBJ 667F, who then applied to change it’s ownership to Robert Kyagulanyi!
A source adds the car initially was registered as a mere normal or regular Land Cruiser like that of Bebe Cool and Chameleone when still baring Kenyan number plate.
Uganda interpol certified its verification on 6th Jan with details of the vehicle a source further confirms. Sources within the NUP camp also tips us that Bobi with the help of his trusted team hired Kiseka Market mechanic experts who pimped in a city local garage to give it some weight.
