Ugandan reggae star-turned-resistance leader Bobi Wine has hinted of a planned return to the country. Wine, a member of Uganda’s parliament left the country in early September to seek medical attention in the United States. He had sustained injuries while in detention at a military barracks.
His arrest last month galvanized Uganda’s young people and as he returns to Kampala this week, Wine faces trial for treason, and a possible death penalty.
So how huge of a risk is it for Bobi Wine to return?
