The residence of Presidential candidate of the National Unity Platform, Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, has been surrounded by police and military officers to prevent him from staging another protest similar to the one in the city centre before his arrest yesterday.
According to Kyagulanyi, after his yesterday’s arrest, police dropped him off at his home and since then his home has been surrounded by security operatives.
Before being arrested, according to the tweet, Wine was protesting over ‘hundreds of missing Ugandans’ whose families had not heard from them for months. The tweet read that those who showed up for the protest were ‘grossly tortured’ and man-handled by the security operatives.
Yesterday Bobi Wine was arrested together with the NUP party spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi also Nakawa West elected legislator among others.
The protest is part of the post-election events in Uganda following the January 14 election that saw president Museveni retaining his seat for more 5years.
