18 month old baby under house arrest with Bobi Wine ‘safely evacuated’





The 18-month old niece of Bobi Wine’s wife has been safely evacuated from their residence, where she had been under house arrest with the Ugandan politician and his wife, Wine told CNN’s Becky Anderson Friday.

The baby, who has not been named, was at Wine’s residence where he has been holed up since the military surrounded his home on January 15.
“I’m glad to inform the world that the baby was evacuated yesterday when my lawyers were very briefly allowed to come in,” he said.

The popstar-turned-politician, who was the main opposition frontrunner in the presidential elections on the 14th, had earlier this week tweeted he was stuck at the house with no food.
“Day Six under house arrest and we’re still stuck with an 18 months old baby who had paid a visit to her auntie (my wife ) be4 we were raided & besieged. The Dad has been denied access to her. We have run out of food and milk. No one is allowed to leave or come into our compound,” he wrote.
The US ambassador to Uganda, Natalie. E Brown, was blocked by security forces from visiting Wine on Monday.


Wine and his wife Barbara remain under house arrest and says High Court judges will visit them on Monday.
“The High Court of Uganda say that they are going to be coming to our place on Monday… but in the meantime, our house is surrounded by hundreds of soldiers, and they even jumped over the fence and have taken control of our compound,” Wine told CNN.
“This detention in my house is illegal, and my lawyers are … saying if there is a case for me and my wife to answer then we should be presented before a competent court,” he added.
Uganda’s longtime leader President Yoweri Museveni was on Saturday declared the winner for a record sixth term by the country’s electoral commission.
Wine rejects the election results, saying he has evidence of fraud and intimidation.
“But because Gen. Museveni is aware that he lost this election, flat — that’s why I am being kept under illegal detention, and I am not allowed to meet with my family, I’m not allowed to meet my doctor, and all my lawyers have been [stopped] from meeting me,” he said.
