Uganda Police Arrest Bobi Wine, Fire Teargas at Supporters

Ugandan police have arrested Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, who is popularly known as Bobi Wine, after shutting down one of his concerts and firing teargas at his fans, according to reports. Kyagulanyi, who has been a fierce critic of President Yoweri Museveni's government since he entered parliament in 2017, has been prevented from staging concerts by the police who claim that he has failed to meet certain requirements.

Police surround Bobi Wine's car before his arrest at One Love Beach-Busabala on April 22, 2019.
