Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine was harassed by Ugandan police just yesterday and now he has jumped onto Twitter to announce that the planned peaceful demonstration is going to take place tomorrow.

The artiste turned politician tweeted the following messages:

Police and the military have been deployed at my residence since yesterday, after the violent arrest. My home is under siege. They have surrounded my fence and installed barricades on all roads leading to my home.

It is today when I attempted to move out of my home that the police told me that I am under house arrest. I was headed to Police headquarters in Naguru to deliver a notification about our planned peaceful demonstrations against police brutality, injustice and misuse of authority.

When they blocked me, I asked my lawyers to deliver the letter, but they too have been blocked and stopped from accessing the police headquarters. A public office! They were ordered to leave the gate to the police headquarters immediately or face arrest!

And all of this stems from the fact that Bobi Wine announced his interest in vying for the presidency and has gone about uniting the opposition parties into a coalition. But prior to this, he was arrested by the Ugandan police force and his whereabouts were unknown until mounting international pressure forced the Yoweri Museveni’s government to present him before a court of law.
