Ugandan opposition leader Bobi Wine remains under “house arrest”, his party said on Sunday, after a disputed election returned President Yoweri Museveni to office for a sixth term.
The former Dancehall artiste turned lawmaker came second in the presidential election, and has said the process was marred by widespread fraud and violence.
He has not left his home since he went out to vote in the election on Thursday, and on Friday said he was under “siege” as soldiers and police surrounded his home, preventing anyone from entering or leaving.
Sharing the news on his Instagram handle, Bobi noted that he and his wife are still under house arrest by military officers for no reason.
He explained that they have shortage of food and when his wife came out to get something for them in their garden, she got molested by some military officers around.
“It’s now four days since the military surrounded our home and placed my wife and I under house arrest. We have run out of food supplies and when my wife tried to pick food from the garden yesterday, she was blocked and assaulted by the soldiers staged in our compound. (ADMIN)”
