The opposition of Ugandan President, Kaguta Museveni on the just concluded Presidential election, Robert Kyagulanyi, known by his stage name Bobi Wine has claimed being under house arrest since four days of the election.

Bobi Wine made this known on his official social platform through his administrator on Sunday, while his home surrounded by military as he run out of food supplies.

He also mentioned how his wife was blocked and assaulted by the soldiers staged in his compound for trying to pick food from the garden. According to him, “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”, he said.

Bobi Wine further said, “Everyone including media and my party officials are restricted from accessing me.

“Zaake Francis 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”, he added.

Meanwhile, President Museveni was reelected with 58.6 percent of the vote, to Wine’s 34.8 percent, after the most violent election campaign in recent years, with the harassment of the opposition, media and deaths of scores of Wine’s supporters.

President Museveni, 76, has ruled Uganda without pause since seizing control in 1986, when he helped to end years of tyranny under Idi Amin and Milton Obote.

Once hailed for his commitment to good governance, the former rebel leader has crushed any opposition and tweaked the constitution to allow himself to run again and again.
