KAMPALA, Uganda | Ugandan pop star politician holds 1st concert since jail
KAMPALA, Uganda — Ugandan pop star and opposition politician Bobi Wine stages his first concert since being charged with treason for his alleged role in a stone attack on the president’s convoy.
Thousands of Ugandans are attending the lakeside event Saturday.
Curtain raisers offered crowd pleasers charged with anti-government messages before Wine, putting on his trademark red beret, came onstage.
Wine, whose real name is Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, performed at a private beach outside the capital, Kampala, after he was denied permission to hold the event at the national stadium.
