At one point, after being thrown to the floor, the woman was seen struggling with the police officers before being stripped to her underwear in front of her children.

Her husband is currently hoping to unseat President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power since 1986, on Thursday, January 14, as Ugandans head to the polls.

Brutal crackdowns on opposition rallies that have left scores dead and the repeated intimidation and arrest of some opposition candidates, their supporters and campaign personnel have marred campaigning ahead of the election.

The opposition candidate earlier in the day reported that his home was being raided by the military.

Wine said on Twitter, “The army raided my home this morning and arrested all my security guards and anyone they could see on my premises.”

“No explanation has been given for the detention. These acts of impunity are all a dying horse’s kicks.

 

Bobi Wine was also forced to end an interview on Kenyan radio prematurely, claiming he saw his bodyguards targeted by Ugandan security forces.

The military is raiding us. I have to end the interview because I can see my security guards beaten by soldiers,” he added.

As Ugandans wait to cast their vote on Thursday, after the government ordered a social media shutdown, few have access to sites such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter.

In a letter to all telecommunications firms, the Uganda Communications Commission ordered them to immediately suspend, until further notice, any access to and use of all social media sites and online messaging applications over the network.
