Dramatic arrest

The popular Kyadondo East MP was arrested  when the KQ plane that he was travelling in touched down at Entebbe International Airport.

Bobi Wine was not even allowed to access the immigration area as police were waiting for him at the airside.

Reports indicate that the musician-turned-politician will be taken to his home and placed under house arrest in his Magere home.

Earlier on, the youthful politician was warmly welcomed by staff at JKIA as he landed to take a connecting flight, from the United States where he had been receiving treatment for injuries sustained after being tortured by the Ugandan military.
