Uganda’s pop star MP defiant at bail hearing

Ugandan musician-turned-MP Bobi Wine has testified at his bail hearing via video link from the prison where he is currently being held, after being charged with “disobedience of statutory duty”.

He had been arrested on Monday for organising a protest against a tax on the use of social media.

Bobi Wine – who real name is Robert Kyagulanyi – has told Buganda Road Court:

Quote Message: If standing for what is right is going to hand me my freedom, I will thank God for it. If standing for what is right is going to keep me in this prison then I will thank God even louder.

If standing for what is right is going to hand me my freedom, I will thank God for it. If standing for what is right is going to keep me in this prison then I will thank God even louder.
