A music producer for Ugandan singer and presidential candidate Bobi Wine has been wounded in the mouth by a rubber bullet during clashes between security personnel and the politician’s supporters, according to a spokesman for his party.
The incident on Tuesday is the latest in escalating violence in Uganda as authorities crack down on supporters of 38-year-old Bobi Wine, who is seeking to end the decades-long rule of 76-year-old President Yoweri Museveni in an election scheduled for January 14. Wine said on social media that several members of his staff had been wounded and that some were in a critical condition. The singer also said he and his supporters had attempted to move to another campaign venue, located in Jinja in eastern Uganda, but security personnel blocked him and shot and blew out his car’s tyres.
