Deadly protests in Uganda after Bobi Wine arrested again

Several people killed and dozens wounded in protests in Uganda, following the arrest of presidential candidate Bobi Wine. His supporters blocked roads and burned tyres in the capital, Kampala, prompting police to fire tear gas and bullets.
Wine says he has been repeatedly beaten and tortured, while police continue to crack down on his supporters
Wine has been in politics since 2017 when he won a seat in the national assembly.
The presidential hopeful has been arrested many times since.
Analysts say he is gaining popularity among young people who are hoping he will bring change to a country ruled by President Museveni for three and a half decades.
Uganda has never witnessed a peaceful transfer of power since independence in 1962.

      @Nana Adutwum let me tell you something real quick. If you say “America” then you’re referring to the people who live in America and that makes no sense cause 99% of the people in the USA don’t even know about what’s going on with your country nor do they care😂 so if Donald trump did some business things with kagame or anyone pls don’t say “America” did it 🤦🏾‍♀️ America is not one person🙄

      Trump is exactly like Museveni. He is dictator by mindset , he praises despots such as this man , North Korea president , Putin, bolsonero, duterte , Netanyahu etc.. any despicable leader on this planet is friend of trump.

  35. SERGE B Reply

    1. how would you feel as a president to-be if your lawful arrest cause your own people death ? can’t you just win by election? why victimize yourself then innocent people pay the price of your recklessness … how will you rule if it has become okay for you to ignite your country’s unrest ? you don’t certainly care about UG! RIP to the lost ones!
    2. how do you feel as a current president when your own people accept to die rather than seeing you ruling the country for the next years to come…. give up, and handover to a most deserving one! you did well so far by taking UG where it is right now (new generation don’t know about all that), but sill it is time to chill, relax, and allow new and fresher ideas to pop in ….
    I don’t think M7 should be UG next president, but willing to bet bobi wine would only cause chaos (that’s his unsaid motto anyway)…. vote for the third popular candidate !

    Same thing is happening in the Commonwealth of Dominica, if you don’t support the dictator in power they will destroy you, they are corrupt to the core and has corrupted every system in our society. These dictators think that they are untouchable but God is the final judge.

    This is the outcome when a president appoints his son the Chief of Defense forces. The citizens are left under the mercy of the royal family because those who would offer protection becomes puppets of the boss and his general son.

    My message to the British Head of State, you should divide Uganda and share it to East Africa surrounding countries. Let Uganda be no more in this world map. It’s a tiny landlock country. For better developments and political freedoms, the solution for peace, Uganda is supposed to be divided. Again and again no bloodshed beyond 2020.. .. 🕊️ 🌍 we need a better world of better leaders

    We all know how this ends. Bobi gets a peep hole in his head for daring question the system, the unarmed people rise up and get cut down by the military and Museveni goes down in history as the next Tyrant who butchered his own people.

    It’s true there’s excessive police brutality but at the same time Uganda as a country is in a bubble of misinformation…. Once people hate the person in power they will always act out of anger and misinformation as well as manipulation from politicians in the opposition parties. There’s alot of misinformation in this video and I also see alot of misinformed people here in the comments… Uganda not only has dictatorship as a problem but also political leaders using Ugandans for their own selfish reasons, and controlling their emotions by spreading too much misinformation just like I can hear in that video….
