Troops withdraw from home of Ugandan opposition leade

UGANDAN opposition leader Bobi Wine has been freed from house arrest for the first time since long-serving president Yoweri Museveni retained power in a January 14 election.

The former pop star yesterday met officials from his National Unity Platform party and gave a press conference at home after security troops finally backed off, a day after a High Court judge ordered them to do so.

Mr Museveni was declared winner of the election with 59 per cent of votes versus 35 per cent for Mr Wine, who claimed the result was fraudulent.

The 76-year-old president, who denies the claims, has faced pressure from allies in the West to free his rival.
