‘Tortured’ Ugandan star ‘flys back from US’

Ugandan pop star-turned-MP Bobi Wine has tweeted that he is returning home, more than two weeks after he flew to the US for medical treatment after accusing the military of brutally torturing him.

The Afrobeats star is out on bail after being charged with treason over the alleged stoning of President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy during a parliamentary by-election campaign in northern Uganda.

Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulani, denies the allegation and accuses the government of trying to crush dissent.

Mr Museveni dimissed allegations of his torture as “fake news”, and said he had “no head or chest injuries or bone fractures”.
