by November 18th, 2020

Protests have erupted in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, after police arrested presidential candidate Bobi Wine in the east of the country.

Since expressing his intention to run in next year’s elections against long-ruling President Yoweri Museveni, Bobi Wine – whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi – has been arrested multiple times.

He has won a large following, especially among young people in the East African country, where general elections are scheduled in January 2021.
