28 perish in Uganda after opposition leader Bobi Wine is arrested

In a statement this Friday, Ugandan police spokesperson Fred Enanga said the deaths were recorded in different areas.

Twenty-eight people died in violent clashes between Ugandan security forces and supporters of detained opposition leader Bobi Wine this week. He said:

We would like to inform the public that a total of 28 people have died following the violent political demonstrations, in multiple areas.

Wine (38), a Ugandan presidential aspirant, was detained by police on Tuesday, just moments after he had registered his nomination to challenge Yoweri Museveni in next year’s election.

The National Unity Party, to which the opposition MP whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, belongs, said he was forcefully pulled from his car and thrown into a van in Kampala after submitting his candidacy papers to election officials.

Museveni, 76, is one of Africa’s longest-serving rulers and had the constitution amended for a second time to allow him to run a sixth time in 2021.
