Ugandan opposition presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine was on Tuesday morning forced to cut short his interview with Kenya’s Hot 96 Radio after military reportedly raided his Kampala home.

Speaking to Jeff Koinange and comedian Professor Hamo of the Royal Media-owned station, the musician-turned politician said the men in uniform were attempting to break into his compound and his security team was being assaulted.

“So I am sorry even right now as we speak, we are being raided by the military. I have to end the interview because I can see soldiers beating up my security guards. I have to go down and give it attention,” he said during the Hot Breakfast show.

He later tweeted that all his security guards had been arrested.

Wine, who has been arrested many times by President Yoweri Museveni’s regime since declaring interest in Uganda’s top seat, also said that one of his personal assistants Davie Bwanika was violently arrested last night after the military broke into his home.

” I know they’ll do more of such and worse but we shall not give up, ” he tweeted.
