National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi, commonly known as Bobi Wine, said on Thursday that police had surrounded his residence and put him “under house arrest” ahead of a planned protest.

However, Robert Kyagulanyi, a popstar-turned-politician, said police and soldiers had barred him from leaving his home in Magere, north of the capital Kampala.

“The cowardly military and police have surrounded our home and put us under house arrest, but the protest is on,” the National Unity Platform (NUP) leader said on his official social media accounts.

Furthermore, opposition politicians had planned demonstrations on Thursday against the poor condition of roads in Uganda, which is hosting two global summits in the coming days.

“Fix our roads! Free political prisoners! Free Uganda!”
Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, challenged veteran President Yoweri Museveni in Uganda’s last election in 2021, calling for an end to his iron-fisted rule.

“Barricaded at home by the COWARDS! No turning back; we deserve better. Please do what you can, wherever you’re, with whatever you have, to show the terrible roads affecting you today,” he posted on X.

In conclusion, former presidential candidate Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change opposition party said on Thursday that he too had not been allowed to leave his house.
