Uganda’s election campaign is off to a violent start. At least 37 people have died in protests triggered by the arrest of opposition figure Bobi Wine. Wine says he was tortured in detention.

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom Guests: Kizza Besigye – Four-time presidential candidate and patron of the opposition party FDC Andrew Mwenda – Founder, The Independent magazine Marion Kirabo – Politician and Social Movement Campaigner Oryem Nyeko – Africa Researcher, Human Rights Watch.
