#Wednesday’s arrests sparked protests in a field on #Kalangala #Island, #Lake #Victoria, where a helicopter was parked and which #Bobi #Wine supporters say was chartered to take it back to the capital #Kampala. ” They’re even shooting now to disperse the people gathering on the roads #Said a witness, who declined to give his name for security reasons.

#Bobi #Wine became the main challenger to #President #Yoweri #Museveni, 76, in the #January 14 presidential election. #Wine’s #National #Unity #Platform spokesperson #Joël #Senyonyi said: “ #Yes, the police arrested him along with his entire campaign team. They (the police) put them in police trucks and started driving, but we don’t know where they are taking them ».

#Police have rejected reports of the arrest and said they have CCTV footage of #Bobi #Wine supporters deflating the tires of police vehicles, inciting violence and obstructing the movement of officers on duty. ” The candidate has been selected for continuously staging massive rallies amid growing threats from #Coronavirus, in total disregard of the #Election #Commission and #Ministry of #Health directives #Police said on their #Facebook page. “#He is transferred to his home in #Magere, #Kampala”, she adds.

#In #November, at least 54 people died after protests erupted following the brief detention of opposition presidential candidate #Robert #Kyagulanyi alias #Bobi #Wine, for alleged violation of physical distancing measures. #Police at the time said they had arrested nearly 600 people and accused the demonstrators of riots and looting.
