Ugandan opposition MP Bobi Wine held in custody

Wine faces charges of incitement for leading protests last year against a social media tax.

    Opposition MP and singer Bobi Wine has been in custody since Monday following charges for leading an anti-government protest over a social media tax in the capital Kampala in July 2018.

    His lawyers say the charges have been fabricated to stop him criticising the country's leadership.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Kampala.
