Bobi Wine unsuccessfully contested for the presidency in the January 2021 polls, coming second to incumbent Yoweri Museveni in an election marred by violence, and a move by the government to switch off the incident.
He garnered 35% of the votes cast, with Museveni scooping 60%.
The youthful politician who doubles up as a pop-star singer disputed the outcome, claiming the exercise had been marred by rigging.
He moved to court seeking to have results that declared President Museveni as a winner nullified, but later withdrew the case and promised to sojourn on to the next election.
