Ugandan court releases Bobi Wine, 11 others on bail

 The Ugandan High Court has this afternoon granted cash bail to pop star-turned-politician Bobi Wine and 11 co-accused colleagues facing treason charges.

Justice Stephen Mubiru also granted bail to Arua Municipality MP-elect Kassiano Wadri, Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru, Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga and a host of other political activists.

Outside the courtroom, there were two stand-by ambulances  to transport the suspects who were tortured in detention to  hospital.
