Uganda’s High Court on Monday ordered security forces to end the house arrest of the presidential election runner-up Bobi wine ———-> Robert Kyagulani, also known as Bono wine has been under house arrest along with his wife at their home outside the capital, Kampala, since he returned from voting on January 14.————-> Sitting at the court’s Civil Division in Kampala, Justice Michael Elubu ruled in favour of a petition lodged by Wine’s lawyers asking for his release ————> The Ugandan government had argued that the restrictions on Wine’s movements were “preventative” measures for his own protection and to prevent protests against the election result, which Wine claims was rigged in favour of President Yoweri Museveni.————> ￼ Bobi Wine wrote on Twitter “The High Court ruled this morning that my continued house arrest (11 days now) is illegal & unconstitutional,” “Several hours later, the military still surrounds my home, blocking access to all! Perhaps (as always) waiting for Gen. Museveni’s orders on the next course of action.
