A Ugandan high court judge, Stephen Mubiru, on Monday granted bail to an opposition lawmaker, Robert Kyagulanyi.

Kyagulanyi was charged with treason over his alleged role in the stoning of President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy this month.

The MP popularly referred to as Bobi Wine, was first released and rearrested by police after a court-martial dropped charges against him on Thursday.
