Singer dragged to court for ′annoying′ the president.

A Ugandan court on Tuesday charged pop star turned leading opposition figure, Bobi Wine, with “annoying” President Yoweri Museveni.

Wine, who entered parliament in 2017, has emerged as a leading critic of Museveni – who has been in power for over three decades – and has faced multiple detentions while authorities have frustrated his efforts to perform.

He announced last month that he would take on Museveni in 2021 national elections. “This government of President Museveni is in panic mode.

At first it was treason and now it is annoying president Museveni. Who on earth can’t be annoyed?” Wine told AFP. “It is a ridiculous charge and am ready to challenge it in court,” he said.
