Uganda Presidential Candidate, Bobi Wine ARRESTED Again 5

Uganda opposition presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi, better known as Bobi Wine has been arrested alongside his campaign team in Kalangala in the country’s central region, he said in a post on Twitter.

The arrests on Wednesday spurred protests at a field in Kalangala Island in Lake Victoria where a helicopter was parked and which Wine’s supporters said they believed would be used to fly him back to the capital Kampala.

Police fired tear gas at the crowd who were protesting.

“They are firing even now to disperse people gathering on roads,” a witness, who did not want to give his name for security reasons, told Reuters news agency.

Wine has emerged as the strongest challenger to President Yoweri Museveni, 76, in the presidential election on January 14.

Joel Senyonyi, spokesman for Wine’s National Unity Platform party, said:

“Yes police has arrested him together with his whole campaign team. They (police) put them in police trucks and started driving but we don’t know where they are taking them.”
