What’s behind the crackdown on Uganda’s opposition?
Dozens killed in protests following the latest arrest of opposition presidential candidate Bobi Wine.
The campaign for Uganda’s election is off to a violent start.
At least 37 people have died in protests triggered by the arrest of the most famous opposition figure, Bobi Wine.
He has been charged with breaking COVID-19 rules during a campaign rally.
Wine says he was tortured in detention and accuses the government of intimidation.
But the government is blaming Wine’s supporters for the unrest.
So just how much of a threat is he to President Yoweri Museveni in next January’s vote?
