    Uganda's opposition politician Bobi Wine has told Al Jazeera that he is willing to sit down with President Yoweri Museveni to discuss challenges facing the country.

    The popular musician-turned-politician was released after three days in custody for taking part in what the authorities called "unlawful protests" against a social media tax.

    Bobi Wine has support among young Ugandans, many of whom are poor, frustrated and have struggled to find jobs.
