Bobi Wine is still waiting for the military forces to leave his home according to EWN, who has been in direct contact with Wine after he was forced to smuggle in a new phone line.
This after a Ugandan court in Kampala ruled Wine should be released.
Wine and his wife have been under de-facto house arrest since he returned from voting on January 14th.
Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulani, is contesting the election, won by President Yoweri Museveni.
Heavily armed soldiers and police officers surrounding the property have been blocking anyone from entering or leaving.
While the Ugandan government argued that the restrictions were in an effort to curb Wine from inciting violent protests, Justice Michael Elubu ruled in favour of a petition lodged by Wine’s lawyers asking for his release.
“The continued indefinite restriction and confinement of the applicant to his home is unlawful and his right to liberty has been infringed,” Elubu said.
“Having found that the restrictions are unlawful it is hereby ordered that they are lifted.”
Wine claims the elections were rigged, but with no evidence of fraud it will be difficult to prove.
