Ugandan pop star and critic of President Museveni detained over protest

A Ugandan court on Monday ordered the detention of a pop star and lawmaker who wants to unseat veteran leader Yoweri Musaveni at the next election. The court’s order came on charges that Bobi Wine organized a demonstration last year against a new tax on social media users. The ruling is the latest in a series of moves against Wine, whose growing base of supporters has rattled Ugandan authorities.
