Not yet Uhuru for Bobi Wine as he is re-arrested, taken to civilian court

Ugandan musician-turned-politician Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine, was briefly freed on Thursday after the state withdrew the treason and possession of weapons and ammunitions charges.

Kyagulanyi was moments later re-arrested and be presented before a civilian court on August 30.

Bobi was arrested 10 days ago after the presidential convoy was stoned in the north-western town of Arua and charged before a military court in Gulu.

The Ugandan State has withdrawn charges of treason and possession of deadly weapons against Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine.

“The court is not an instrument of arresting. The gentleman seated right there was beaten and his rights were abused. My prayer is he should be freed and he gets medication. He needs agent medical care,” said lawyer Medard Lubega Segona when Kyagulanyi was presented before a civilian court.
