Ugandan pop star politician holds 1st concert since jail

KAMPALA, Uganda – Ugandan pop star and opposition politician Bobi Wine stages his first concert, accused of treason for alleged involvement in a stone attack on the president's convoy.

Thousands of Ugandans attend the lake event on Saturday.

Curtain Raisers offered joie de vivre charges against government-targeted embassies before Wine stepped onto the stage and put on his well-known red beret.

Wine, whose real name is Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, appeared on a private beach outside the capital, Kampala, after being denied permission to hold the National Stadium event.

He had been relatively calm since returning from the US, where he had dealt with injuries during alleged torture by state agents in August.

The singer challenges longtime President Yoweri Museveni by speaking directly to Uganda's disappointed youth.
