Uganda's Bobi Wine picked up by police on arrival home from US

Bobi Wine

"Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobo Wine) for easily cooperating with law enforcement officers at Entebbe airport who provided him with a chauffeur driven auto, escorts and traffic clearance to Magere", Opondo said.

Police have blocked journalists and supporters from entering the home of the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, an increasingly vocal critic of President Museveni's government.

Kyagulanyi, 36, has been seeking medical treatment in the United States for injuries he claims were sustained while allegedly being tortured in custody following his arrest last month.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Ugandan Police Force stated that Kyagulanyi would be escorted by security personnel from Entebbe International Airport to his home, and warned against "unlawful rallies, processions and assemblies".

The official, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Reuters that Kyagulanyi was "just being taken home".

Suge Knight pleads to manslaughter over fatal confrontation
Although Knight reportedly counted Carter as a friend, prosecutors contended the collision was deliberate. Jury selection in the murder trial had been set to start on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.


Government Spokesman Ofwono Aopndo said about an hour and half after the MP's arrival, that he had been "safely" delivered to his Magere home.

Although a few people still went to the airport to receive them, the Police swiftly picked Kyagulanyi on arrival and whisked him away.

Kyagulanyi is widely seen as posing a significant challenge to Museveni, who has ruled since 1986.

His message - that young Ugandans need a dynamic new head of state to tackle the myriad problems they face - has electrified citizens who say they are fed up with corruption, unemployment, and state repression of dissent. Armoured personnel carriers and police vehicles lined the highway.

The MP and other politicians were charged in August after stones were allegedly thrown at President Yoweri Museveni's convoy.

To ensure their directeives were heeded to, the Police and army deployed in and around Kampala and Entebbe, including parts of Kasangati, Kamwokya and at his home in Magere.

"I am a free Ugandan with the right to move freely in my country".

Witnesses said the road linking Kampala to Entebbe town about 50 km (30 miles) to the south was cordoned off, with armed police surrounding the airport.

Police earlier arrested several people who had been trying to reach Entebbe Airport to welcome the politician back.
