Ugandan singer Bobi Wine declares for presidency

Controversial Ugandan musician, Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, has declared intention to run for the seat of Ugandan President.

The musician-turned-MP announced this at a meeting of his People Power movement that he will run for president.

He unveiled a team that will run his 2021 presidential election campaign.

His popularity among Uganda’s youth is seen as a challenge to veteran President Yoweri Museveni.

Mr Museveni, 74, is expected to run for a sixth term.

Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, is currently facing treason charges after being arrested last year after the president’s convoy was allegedly pelted with stones following a campaign rally.

He has alleged he was tortured and beaten while in custody in August, something denied by the authorities.
