Amnesty: Bobi Wine Arrest “Shameless”

Amnesty International has released a statement of condemnation calling for the immediate release of Bobi Wine from prison. Seif Magango, Amnesty’s Deputy Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes called the detention an attempt at silencing.

It is not a crime for Bobi Wine to hold a concert or organize a protest; it is a right enshrined in Ugandan and international law.

The Ugandan authorities must immediately free Bobi Wine and stop misusing the law in a shameless attempt to silence him for criticizing the government.
