Uganda’s Opposition Leader Bobi Wine Arrested During Protest In Kampala

Uganda’s opposition leader, Bobi Wine was arrested and later released after he led MPs and activists from his party in a demonstration in Kampala.

Bobi Wine was briefly detained on Monday as he took part in a protest in the capital, Kampala, against the detention of his supporters, according to posts on his Twitter page.

The 39-year-old opposition leader last week called on Ugandans to “rise up peacefully and unarmed” against President Yoweri Museveni who won a sixth term in office following disputed elections in January.

Bobi Wine, who has disputed the results of the presidential election, managed to win 35 of the votes, while the incumbent president was declared the winner of the January 14 polls with 59 percent of the vote.
