Presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine’s house was raided on Tuesday morning, two days to the Ugandan elections.

According to Bobi Wine, the army raided his home and arrested everyone on the premises.

“The army has this morning raided my home, arrested all my security guards and anyone they could see around my premises. No reason for the arrest was given. Such acts of impunity are all kicks of a dying horse,” said Bobi Wine on his social media pages.

The musician turned politician also says his friends’ houses were also raided.

“One of my personal assistants, Davie Bwanika’s home was raided in the night, broken into and he was violently arrested by the army and driven to an unknown destination. I know they’ll do more of such and worse but we shall not give up,” said Bobi Wine.

The raid came just five days after Bobi wine shipped his family abroad.
