Bobi Wine continues to hit the world media because of his battle with Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni. Bobi Wine has been under torture in jail and has been in terrible condition health wise.
Bobi Wine was arrested on Thursday at Entebbe International Airport when he was heading to the USA for advanced medical treatment after being tortured by security forces.
He was held together with another legislator Francis Zaake. The allegations that Bobi Wine was abused caused great protests in Kampala and other parts of Uganda.
Bobi Wine and Zaake were accused of throwing stones at President Museveni’s convoy during a particular campaign of a vacant seat in parliament. The police said in a separate statement that they had found Zaake early on Thursday at the airport trying to flee the country and stopped him.
Bobi Wine has proved to be a threat in Museveni’s 32-year rule in power. Bobi Wine became famous and won his seat due to his music and fearless criticism of the government.
Bobi has been charged with treason together with other colleagues after the stoning incident. According to his supporters, Bobi was beaten with a metal bar during the time he was in detention.
His colleague Zaake hasn’t been charged, but he is undergoing treatment in a specific hospital in Kampala. Some images on social media showed him lying on a hospital bed with bruises on his body. During the legislator’s arrest, Bobi Wine’s wife condemned the heinous act done by the police.
