An order has been given to soldiers to immediately vacant opposition leader, Bobi Wine’s house.
The Ugandan court gave the order after security forces surrounded Bobi Wine’s home and kept him under house arrest since the mid-month presidential election.

“The judge ordered that the state and its agencies should immediately vacate his property and his right to personal liberty should immediately be reinstated,” lawyer George Musisi told Reuters.
Museveni, 76, who has been in power since 1986, was declared winner of the poll with 59% of votes versus 35% for Wine, who had for years denounced corruption and nepotism in his songs. He rejected the results, alleging fraud which the government denies.

Police spokesman, Patrick Onyango, said he had no immediate comment as the ruling had not been received.
There was no immediate reaction from the government or confirmation from the court.
US ambassador, Natalie E. Brown, had tried to visit Wine at his home, drawing an accusation of meddling and subversion from the Ugandan government.
