Bobi Wine arrested on arrival in Uganda from U.S., police deny claim

Bobi Wine

The homecoming of Robert Kyagulanyi, a pop star and opposition legislator also known as Bobi Wine, could present a significant challenge to Museveni, who has ruled since 1986.

Government has hailed Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) for cooperating with security forces who delivered him from Entebbe Airport to his residence in Magere - Kasangti.

A seemingly more determined Bobi Wine said that seeking asylum overseas due to fear of threats on his life is not among the options he hopes to undertake, but rather emphasised that he will stay in Uganda and fight on until him or his children get the freedom.

And Bobi Wine, an Independent MP, strengthened his political stand at the time by opposing scrapping of the upper presidential age cap.

Police in Uganda have warned that any welcoming rally for musician-turned-MP Bobi Wine will be unlawful.

He was addressing journalists at his home in Magele, Wakiso district, moments after arriving in a police van which had earlier whisked him off the tarmac at the Entebbe International Airport. "MP is expected to comply with the traffic laws and regulations".

Although reports indicate that the two are being held at Kisubi Police Station, this Website could not readily confirm this with Police.

The official, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Reuters that Kyagulanyi, a prominent critic of President Yoweri Museveni, was "just being taken home".

The return of Kyagulanyi, a 36-year old pop star and reggae musician turned legislator, has rattled the government headed by the 74-year-old Museveni, who leads a nation where almost 80 percent of the population is under the age of 30.

He said he was beaten with an iron bar in detention in northern Uganda. Museveni, in turn, has accused opposition figures of trying to lure Uganda's youth into rioting.

Ssentamu has a big following among poor, unemployed young people in urban areas.

His arrest sparked riots by demonstrators demanding his release and security forces violently put down protests in the capital, Kampala.

His wife, Barbie, told AFP "security surrounded him and took him away".
