Army raids home of Ugandan presidential candidate Kyagulanyi, arrest security guards


Ugandan opposition presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi also called Bobi Wine was on Tuesday forced to end his interview with a local radio station prematurely after the military allegedly raided his Kampala home.

The Opposition leader took to social media to express his frustrations and condemn the act.

‘The army has this morning raided my home, arrested all my security guards and anyone they could see around my premises’

‘No reason for the arrest was given’ Wine, said on Twitter

‘Gen. Museveni needs to tell the world what he intends to do in this election that he should arrest my entire campaign team, my assistants & supporters.
 
‘Last night, the military yet again arrested so many friends and comrades; two days to the election,” he added.

Mr. Kyagulanyi is among 10 candidates challenging President Yoweri Museveni in the Thursday’s presidential election.

President Museveni has been in power since 1986. He is one of the longest-serving presidents in Africa having ascended to power at the end of a five-year war in Uganda.

In 2017, the county changed her Constitution removing the age limits for presidential candidates, thus clearing path for Museveni to run for a sixth term in 2021.
