The Uganda Police has re-arrested the just released Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert popularly known as Bobi Wine. This was just after a few minutes after being set free by the Army Court Martial.

Earlier today, Bobi Wine was cleared of the charges by the Military Court. The state through the Director of Public Prosecution withdrew the charges against the Kyadondo East MP who has been in detention since August 12th. He was flown to Gulu from Makindye military barracks where he’s been remanded since August 15.

The Military Court session was chaired by Lt. Gen. Gutti. Bobi Wine was released amidst jubilation from his supporters who had come but this excitement was short lived.

Bobi Wine was released at around 11: 20 but while he was leaving the court premises with his lawyers, the Uganda police rearrested him and drove him to the Chief Magistrates court in Gulu. He was accompanied by his wife and his lawyer.

He has then been charged with treason and added to the list of his accomplices who were also charged earlier of treason. These include MP-elect Kassiano Wadri, Gerald Karuhanga, Paul Mwiru and others. These are charged with pelting stones at one of the cars in the President Musevni’s convoy with the intention of harming the president

Bobi Wine has now been remanded until August 30th but his lwayer, Medard Ssegon demanded that he can be allowed to see his personal doctors. The court has allowed him to access medical attention privately till he comes back to court on August 30th to see whether he will be granted a bail.

“This court as a custodian of justice cannot sit back as the health of the accused deteriorates, you are however remanded till 30th of this month” the presiding judge ruled.
