Rapper-turned-opposition leader Bobi Wine pledged to continue his fight to oust Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni after soldiers released him from home detention following January’s disputed election.

President Yoweri Museveni was declared the winner while opposition leader Bobi Wine alleged the vote was rigged, capping a campaign marred by an internet shutdown and the country’s worst political violence for decades.
