Police in Kasangati, Wakiso District, have arrested the independent candidate vying for Kyadondo East MP seat Mr Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu, popularly known as Bobi Wine.

Mr Kyagulanyi was on Tuesday arrested as he tried to address his supporters at Kasaganti in a scheduled rally.

He was briefly detained at Kasangati police station before being whisked away to at Kira Division police after his supporters turned rowdy and demanded for his release.

It is not yet clear whether Mr Kyagulanyi will be charged.

Police say Mr Kyagulanyi was earlier warned against holding the rally at the venue because President Yoweri Museveni was about a kilometre away from the area.

Mr Museveni is in the constituency to campaign for the NRM candidate Sitenda Sebalu.

But Mr Kyagulanyi’s team argue that their candidate did not break any law because that was where he was supposed to hold his last rally.

His supporters have stormed Kira Division police demanding for his release.
