  • 45 dead in Uganda after arrest of pop star opposition leader

ABOUT 45 people died during protests in Uganda last week over the arrest of opposition presidential hopeful and musician Bobi Wine, with more than 800 people arrested.

Enanga said the arrests occurred during the two days of protests that broke out on November 18 after Wine was arrested again in the eastern town of Luuka.

According to the police spokesperson Fred Enanga, 39 of the fatalities are male while 6 are female, 42 of the dead bodies have already been claimed from Mulago city mortuary.

"As part of the ongoing investigations into the violent political and criminal protests, our task teams continue to track down perpetrators after the riots", Enanga said.

"All our territorial commanders intensified efforts to identify protesters and looters mid-last week, across all flashpoint areas, using the widespread CCTV technology (both public and private), license plate readers and facial recognition", he said.

Uganda's Electoral Commission earlier this month cleared 11 presidential candidates, including incumbent President Yoweri Museveni, to run in the 2021 general elections.

Police accused him of flouting Covid-19 guidelines which require presidential candidates to address less than 200 people.
