Ugandan musician-turned-politician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine was accused of annoying, alarming or annoying President Yoweri Museveni.

The fresh charge is an addition to prior treason allegations, according to BBC reports.

Parliament’s outspoken Kyadondo East Member, who strongly opposes Museveni’s regime, was charged last year with traitorous charges for allegedly stoning the motorcade of the president.

Wine allegedly endured torture under Ugandan police while in custody.

He was later flew for specific therapy to the United States.

However, Wine was re-arrested by the police upon entry from the United States.

The lawmaker was violently detained in April as he was headed to a Busabala concert where he was supposed to deliver a speech about police brutality, injustice and abuse of power.

Police had canceled the concert on the basis that during the Easter Monday concert they were unable to provide sufficient safety.

He was published later on bail at USh1,000,000 (Ksh27,000).

The defiant MP, who in 2021 stated his intention to challenge Museveni, is also facing illegal ownership of firearms and illegitimate charges of protest.

The fees on Tuesday come days after the death of a musician signed with Wine’s label
