GULU – Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, best known as Bobi Wine, was Thursday charged with treason by Gulu Magistrates Court, and then remanded to prison.

The legislator will remain on remand at Gulu Central Prison in northern Ugand until August 30, when he is expected to return to court.

Appearing feeble and needing a hand into the civilian court, Bobi Wine was allowed to access private medication.

Earlier the General Court Martial Chairman Andrew Gutti set free Bobi Wine but his freedom was short-lived as he was re-arrested by police as he stepped out of the Court Martial.

Gutti’s ruling followed state’s decision to drop charges of illegal possession of military ammunition that were earlier preferred against the accused.

“It will be unfair to continue prosecuting the accused after the preferred charges have been dropped. I hereby declare Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi free unless he faces any other charges,” Gutti ruled.
