Uganda's Bobi Wine In Custody for Disobedience

Days after Ugandan police told Bobi Wine he was free to leave his house, the parliamentarian was rearrested as he was in the process of attending to another legal matter. His new charges include inciting violence, holding an unlawful assembly on Easter Monday in Busabala, disobedience of statutory duty for holding a public meeting to protest against mobile money and social media tax, without notifying police.
