PHOTOS: Jinja Residents Protest Over Bobi Wine

Police in the Eastern Uganda town of Jinja fired teargas and engaged in running battles with protesters on Wednesday morning.

The protesters were demanding the release of jailed Kyadondo East MP and singer Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Bobi Wine appeared before the Court Martial in Gulu where he was charged with unlawful possession of ammunition and remanded at Makindye Military Barracks until August 23rd

He was arrested a week ago, following the chaos in Arua that led to shooting of his driver.

Protesters in Jinja lit fires in the middle of the road, blocking traffic and disrupting business.
