Over 30 Lives Lost in Uganda During Political Riots

Over 30 people have lost their lives in the Uganda protests following the arrest of Presidential Candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine. 

Another 65 were reported injured, with police saying 350 people were detained in the capital city of Kampala by yesterday.

Protests began on Wednesday following the arrest of opposition candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, who has emerged as the main challenger to longstanding President Yoweri Museveni in the January 14 presidential election. 

The Kyadondo East MP was arrested in the eastern district of Luuka at his campaign venue after police accused him of violating EC guidelines issued to contain the spread of Covid-19 which has killed 157 Ugandans and infected 16,905 others since March this year when the virus outbreak was confirmed in the country.
