Uganda’s leading opposition presidential contender has resumed his campaign following violence yesterday.

Two people were reportedly killed and one of his campaign staff was hit in the face by a rubber bullet fired by police.

The popstar-turned-politician, who goes by the name Bobi Wine, is wildly popular among young Ugandans. He is attempting to unseat President Yoweri Museveni, who’s seeking a sixth term after 35 years in power.
