KAMPALA, Uganda - The Ugandan pop star and opposition politician known as Bobi Wine was remanded to a maximum-security prison on Monday after being charged over his alleged role in a street protest last year against a tax on social media.

Wine, whose real name is Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, and others led an anti-government protest in the capital, Kampala, in July 2018 without the police's prior authorization, Ugandan police spokesman Fred Enanga told The Associated Press.
