Museveni Critic Bobi Wine Charged in Military Trial

Ugandan pop singer, MP and prominent government critic Robert Kyagulanyi - better known by his stage name Bobi Wine - has been charged illegal possession of weapons in a military court. This follows his arrest after President Yoweri Museveni's motorcade was attacked by people throwing stones. Kyagulanyi is being tried under military law because investigators say they found two guns in his hotel room.
