Uganda’s opposition leader Bobi Wine (real name Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu) has said the Ugandan authorities are still surrounding his house 4 days since they camped outside the firebrand politician’s house.
Using his official Twitter Account Wine said the soldiers guarding his house even assaulted his wife when she tried to get food from the garden. Wine said they have been under house arrest for 4 days and they are running out of food supplies:
It’s now four days since the military surrounded our home and placed my wife and I under house arrest. We have run out of food supplies and when my wife tried to pick food from the garden yesterday, she was blocked and assaulted by the soldiers staged in our compound. (ADMIN)
Bobi Wine even said the state agents badly assaulted one of his team members to the point that he had to be hospitalized:
Everyone including media and my party officials are restricted from accessing me. @ZaakeFrancis was arrested outside my gate as he made his way to my house, he was badly beaten by soldiers. He is now in Rubaga hospital. (ADMIN)
Wine has said he has video footage of election rigging in some parts of Uganda and he is adamant he won the election even though the Uganda Election Commission declared Yoweri Museveni the winner. Meanwhile, the EU and the UK government have declared the elections relatively calm despite the turbulent campaign Bobi Wine went through.
