Uganda Opposition Leader Bobi Wine Arrested, Says Party

A top party official has disclosed that Ugandan opposition leader, Bobi Wine, was arrested Thursday, October 5, on his return home from a trip abroad.

The post was accompanied by a photo appearing to show two men seizing him by the arms on the tarmac at Entebbe International Airport.

Wine’s supporters had planned to accompany him en masse to his home north of the capital, Kampala; to welcome him back, but police had said such gatherings were illegal.

Last month, Ugandan police announced they were banning rallies being organized by the National Unity Platform across the country because of public order issues.
