Ugandan presidential candidate Bobi Wine

 

Ugandan presidential candidate Bobi Wine released on bail after being charged with spreading coronavirus deliberately.

The court directed on Friday after Bobi Wine, 38, held a big rally this week.


Human rights organisations say the virus charge is a guise to stifle political opposition.


Demonstration erupted at the Capital, Kampala where 29 people died in clashes when the Bobi Wine, who is also a pop star, was arrested this week.


The musician, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, is among 11 candidates challenging President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power since 1986.


Human Rights Watch says it is clear that the Ugandan authorities are using the pandemic guidelines to restrain opposition and that the governing party has held large events ahead of the election on January 14, 2021.
