- Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine revealed he was still not free to walk around in Uganda

- He said Ugandan police had also made it almost impossible for him to address supporters

- The youthful lawmaker has been at odds with the authorities since his driver was shot dead

- He has always insisted the bullet that silenced his driver was meant for him

- Trouble started when Museveni's car was attack during by-election campaigns in Arua

- The attack on president's convoy was followed by arrest of opposition politicians including Wine

- Wine was tortured, detained and later released to seek treatment abroad following a spate of protests

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has expressed disappointment over the manner in which he was being treated by the Ugandan authorities in his own country.

Wine revealed he has not been a free man since his return from America where he went to seek treatment, after he was who accused him of attacking President Yoweri Museveni's motorcade and being in possession of illegal firearms.

Appearing on Citizen TV's Jeff Koinange Live on Wednesday, October 10, the vocal MP said there were deliberate attempts by the police to prevent him from addressing any gathering and that every time he left his house, the police trailed him.

Wine emphasized no amount of intimidation from the government will dissuade him from fighting for freedom and castigating the Ugandan strongman who has been in power for 32 years and still counting.

The Kyadondo East clarified he still had a lot of respect for Museveni, both as a president and as his elder, but he pleaded with the head of state to do the right thing, which is to peacefully exit office and let someone else take over.

Already a widely known Afropop celebrity in Uganda, the 36-year-old musician-turned-politician was elected as an independent MP for Kyadondo East in 2017.

As an outspoken critic of Museveni, Wine has captivated the nation’s youth, many of whom have felt excluded and alienated by Uganda’s political establishment.

His popularity has allowed the Opposition to capture numerous seats, including most recently in Arua by-election with the victory of Kassiano Wadri, who defeated a candidate backed by Museveni’s ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party.

However, immediately following this election, violent clashes broke out.

Protesters were accused of pelting the president’s motorcade with stones, after which officers from the Special Forces Command (SFC) and the secret service attacked Opposition supporters and arrested at least 33 people, Wine included.

While detained by SFC and police, Wine said he was subjected to extreme abuse and torture.

By the end of this abuse, he was unable to stand on his own, with significant injuries for which he sought to seek treatment in the US.
