Wine has been at loggerheads with authorities in Uganda since he entered the political fray.
He joined politics in 2017 as an independent and has remained a thorn in President Yoweri Museveni’s side, condemning his policies and singing anti-government songs.
Wine is now challenging Museveni’s three-decade grip on power. He was previously arrested in early November after handing in his nomination papers to the election body.
