Ambitions for a people-power revolution,

Bobi Wine is a significant figure not only in the emerging politics of Uganda but in the story of a changing Africa.
He represents a youth voice that is social media-literate, hungry for economic development, and angry with the corruption and cronyism that has blighted the lives of generations.
Three-quarters of Uganda’s population is under the age of 35 and Bobi Wine told the BBC he has come home to lead a people-power revolution.

The very fact that President Museveni has allowed Bobi Wine to return to his home represents a victory for the musician-turned-politician – and is possibly the consequence of international pressure.

But for all his undoubted support among the young, he still lacks a wider political organisation to challenge for the presidency, and 74-year-old Yoweri Museveni may have simply paused in his familiar tactics of repression.
Police earlier arrested several people who had been trying to reach Entebbe Airport to welcome the politician back.
The police later issued a statement thanking Bobi Wine for co-operating with officers who escorted him home from the airport.
The MP and other politicians were charged in August after stones were allegedly thrown at President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy. They deny the charges.
Uganda’s army has rejected allegations that the MP was tortured while in their custody. source  bbc
