Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Police arrested 40 individuals, including Busiro South Member of Parliament Hon Matovu Charles, on charges of inciting violence as opposition leader Robert Sentamu Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine, returned from mobilization tours in South Africa and Canada.

The arrest took place yesterday in a security operation with joint deployments, including overt and covert officers, strategically positioned, and snap checkpoints on roads leading to Entebbe and along Gayaza road.
