Ugandan Police have arrested youthful opposition politician Robert Kyagulanyi, who is popularly known as Bobi Wine.

Media reports indicate he was arrested alongside several of his aides and whisked to Kasangati Police station.

The Kyadondo East lawmaker has declared his intention of challenging President Yoweri Museveni in the elections.He insists the public participation is provided for in the country’s constitution.
