Ugandan pop star cum opposition supporter, Bobi Wine has been charged to court for ‘annoying’ the president of his country, Yoweri Museveni.
Wine, who entered parliament in 2017, has emerged as a leading critic of Museveni – who has been in power for over three decades – and has faced multiple detentions while authorities have frustrated his efforts to perform.
The popular critic had announced his intention to run against Museveni in the 2021 national elections.
“This government of President Museveni is in panic mode. At first it was treason and now it is annoying president Museveni. Who on earth can’t be annoyed? It is a ridiculous charge and am ready to challenge it in court,” Wine told AFP.
