    Police have used tear gas and live bullets to disperse youths in Mukono who were protesting against the continued incarceration of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine.

    Bobi was violently arrested alongside three other legislators and about 30 of their supporters following clashes between rival groups in a hotly contested parliamentary race in Arua.

    Bobi, who is said to have been tortured, was separately charged in a military court in Gulu with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition and remanded to Makindye military prison until August 23. The other suspects who are accused of pelting President Yoweri Museveni's motorcade with stones were arraigned in Gulu Magistrate's court and charged with treason and remanded to Gulu main prison until August 30.

    It doesn't look like it's getting any better.
