Ugandan Opposition Leader, Popularly Known as Bobi Wine, Blasts Sitting President Over Police Brutality

Ugandan opposition figure Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, has accused President Yoweri Museveni of using police to intimidate his supporters during the ongoing election campaigns. He explained:

“Gen. Museveni and his pathetic hypocrisy. In every town, our people (supporters) are brutalized, teargased and arrested for gathering to wave at us,’’

Kyagulanyi, 38, a pop star-turned-politician, is seen by many as the new face of Uganda’s opposition, viewed as a major threat to Museveni, 76, in power since 1986.

Kyagulanyi joined politics less than five years ago after he was elected to become a member of the parliament in a by-election for Kyadondo East constituency. He has now grown his support base across the landlocked East African nation.
