Grandfather Yoweri Kaguta Museveni against Pop Star Bobi Wine

The 76-year-old Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is often referred to as Jajja, meaning “Grandfather”. The biggest threat to Africa’s third longest-ruling president keeping his authoritarian grip on the East African nation is expected to come from pop-star Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, widely known by his music moniker Bobi Wine.

Mr Bobi Wine (38) has accused the government of using security forces to spoil his campaign, by breaking up rallies and beating and detaining supporters.

Moments after Wine’s nomination on Tuesday, police and military personnel broke the windows of his vehicle to forcibly remove him and take him home in a police van, to prevent the opposition candidate from moving with his supporters.

Security personnel then used teargas and live rounds to disperse supporters outside Bobi Wine’s residence, injuring at least 15 people while dozens were detained.
