Ugandan Opposition leader, Bobi Wine was briefly detained on Monday as he took part in a protest in the Capital, Kampala against the detention of his supporters.
The thirty-nine-year-old opposition leader last week called on Ugandans to rise up peacefully and unarmed against President Yoweri Museni who won a sixth term in office following disputed elections in January.
Bobi Wine who has disputed the results of the Presidential election managed to win thirty-five of the votes while the incumbent President was declared the winner of the January fourteen polls with fifty-nine per cent of the vote.
About fifteen members of Parliament and activists from Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform, NUP Political Party, wearing business suits and red ties took part in the brief protest which was quickly halted by Police Officers and Soldiers.
