Uganda's pop star, Bobi Wine charged to court for 'annoying' the president

A Ugandan court on Tuesday charged pop star turned leading opposition figure Bobi Wine with "annoying" President Yoweri Museveni, his lawyer told AFP.

The singer, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, appeared in court on a prior treason charge after he and other opposition politicians allegedly stoned Museveni's convoy during a campaign rally in August last year.

"He was charged with annoying the president" in relation to the same case, his lawyer Asuman Basalirwa told AFP.


Wine, who entered parliament in 2017, has emerged as a leading critic of Museveni -- who has been in power for over three decades and has faced multiple detentions while authorities have frustrated his efforts to perform.

He announced last month that he would take on Museveni in 2021 national elections.
