Bobi Wine, the leader of Uganda’s primary opposition party, revealed that he has been subjected to “house arrest” by the police, coinciding with the country hosting the Non-Aligned Movement summit.

On January 15, 2024, Bobi Wine accused the government of apprehending homeless individuals and demolishing thousands of small businesses ahead of the summit, which is set to be followed by a meeting of the G77+China group, comprising 134 developing nations.

The alleged house arrest of the opposition figure adds a layer of complexity to the ongoing political developments surrounding the international gatherings, prompting further scrutiny and concerns about democratic processes in Uganda.
