The Ugandan State has withdrawn charges against Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine.

He had been charged with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

Activists held demonstrations in Nairobi to protest the arrest and detention of Bobi Wine as police in Kampala surrounded homes of opposition leaders.

Kenyans online have expressed their solidarity with Ugandans in the fight for Bobi Wine’s release.

Sauti Sol band and Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC are among those who have joined the #FreeBobiWine social media movement.

Ugandan Police and the army were deployed outside the homes of opposition leaders Allan Ssewanyana, Kizza Besigye and Ingrid Turinawe in anticipation of protests.
