Ugandan troops have withdrawn from around the home of opposition leader and pop star Bobi Wine, ending his house arrest since a January 14 election won by long-serving President Yoweri Museveni.

KAMPALA -The High Court in Kampala has issued an order directing police and the military to vacate with immediate effect, Bobi Wine's home in Magere.

Former guerrilla leader Museveni, 76, has always been a Western ally, receiving copious aid and sending troops to trouble spots including Somalia to fight Islamist militants.

Wine, 38, had been besieged at home since voting in the presidential poll where he rode a wave of youth disillusionment to challenge Museveni's 34-year rule.

The incumbent was declared victor with 59% of votes versus 35% for Wine, who had for years denounced corruption and nepotism in his songs. The opposition rejected the result, alleging fraud which the government denies.

Monday's ruling by the High Court in Kampala comes after a petition by Bobi Wine's lawyers. "Their continued presence there is illegal", he said.

Wine is a hero to many young Ugandans who view former guerrilla leader Museveni as an out-of-touch autocrat repressing dissenters and failing to create jobs. "Mr. Museveni's tactics towards those who advocate for an inclusive democracy is unsafe and must be addressed by the global community". After some delay, this eventually came into effect in November.In a note filed with the WTO on January 14, the Hong Kong government laid out seven rules of the global trading architecture that it accuses the U.S. of flouting.
