If their is anything which cannot pass under the leadership of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is referring to the country as “our Country.”
Museveni has owned Uganda as his property. Those words are now haunting Bobi Wine.
Police have surrounded the home of Ugandan popstar-turned-politician Bobi Wine, a day after canceling his nationwide shows, the musician said.Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, alleged that officers were also searching visitors to his home in Magere north of Kampala capital.
The MP has been in a standoff with the Ugandan authorities since Monday after his shows were canceled because police said they failed to meet safety standards, prompting widespread protests.
Wine was removed from his car by police and escorted to his home while heading to a briefing he had called to address the concert cancellation and “police brutality” on Monday.
“We shall peacefully demonstrate against these illegalities by police,” the singer said, and he vowed to lead a protest to the national police headquarters on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old reggae star has signaled his interest to unseat one of Africa’s longest serving leaders, Yoweri Museveni, and has continued to speak out against his regime.
He won his parliamentary seat as an independent in 2017 and has since rallied opposition lawmakers to his side in his bid to end Museveni’s 32-year-old rule in Uganda.His performances scheduled to hold in Uganda were canceled last year, and some of his songs that are highly critical of the government have been banned in the past.
