Bobi Wine who disclosed this on his official social platform on Friday, said soldiers in UPDF uniform and others in plain clothes but carrying guns have jumped over his fence and taken control of his home.

According to him, “We are under siege. Soldiers in UPDF uniform and others in plain clothes but carrying guns have jumped over our fence and taken control of my home. None of them is speaking to us.

Earlier, Bobi Wine alleged the blockage of his phone and that of his wife. “Like my wife’s, my phone has been blocked and I am unable to recieve or make regular calls.

“I know this is to stop me from communicating to our agents and coordinators”, Bobi Wine said.

Twenty-six people from a coalition of civil society groups have been arrested for allegedly manning an illegal vote-tallying centre at a hotel in the capital as reported by BBC news.

Also, during vote counting, lorries carrying soldiers drove through the city and police and local defence units were also seen patrolling.
