One of Africa's remaining dictators Yoweri Museveni and his new found friend Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa partied on Wednesday at Uganda's Independence celebrations while main opposition leader Bobi Wine was placed on house arrest.

In a Twitter thread on Tuesday,Wine also a popular musician in the country, said Museveni wanted to frustrate a music concert organised by his party.

"Since 11:00pm, police and military surrounded my home and my private property, One Love Beach Busabala, in yet another move to place me under house arrest and  block our Independence Day music concert. 156th concert so far! For singing truth to power, I can't perform in my own country," said Wine who posted pictures of the  police camped outside his home.

Wine, an ally of Zimbabwe opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, said Museveni was  afraid of critical voices.
