The death toll from protests over the latest arrest of Ugandan opposition presidential hopeful and musician Bobi Wine has risen to 30, as a second day of demonstrations continued in the country’s worst unrest in a decade.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango earlier in the day said the toll was likely to rise. At least 65 people were injured during the protests that erupted Wednesday in different parts of the East African country.

“There are those who are badly off,” Onyango said. Police did not say whether any of the deaths were from new clashes Thursday.

He said 350 people had been arrested and detained throughout the capital, Kampala. Police and army were deployed heavily as protesters blocked roads and burned tires.

Police accuse Wine of flouting COVID-19 guidelines that require presidential candidates to address less 200 people.

Bobi Wine, who has been arrested many times in recent years, has captured the imagination of many Ugandans with his persistent calls for President Yoweri Museveni to retire after 36 years in power. The election is early next year.
