    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.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
