Court in Uganda Rules Police Halting Bobi Wine Concerts Illegal

Ugandan MP Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine says he is not excited about a court ruling that declared police orders to halt his concerts in the country illegal. Obiga Kania, Uganda's Internal Affairs Minister says the court ruling will not stop the police from implementing public order management laws that govern any public gathering. Wine last held a concert in Uganda three years ago.
