Uganda’s opposition politician Bobi Wine, a pop star whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, has said the US ambassador was “turned away” from his home by soldiers during an attempted visit.
Ambassador Natalie Brown has not responded to the claim.
Bobi Wine said his home remains cordoned by the military and he was not being allowed to leave.
He previously said his life was being threatened following Thursday’s election which saw Yoweri Museveni win a sixth elected term amid reports of election irregularities.
President Museveni has denied rigging the elections but the EU, United Nations and several rights groups have raised concerns.
The US has also called for investigations into reports of irregularities in the election.
