Ssegirinya has been in the spotlight since last week after it emerged that his academic documents had issues as he was sued to have his election victory overturned.

The protests calling for the release of detained NUP supporters were announced and initiated by the party leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who unfrotunately was quickly arrested by police and drove him back to his home in Magere, Wakiso District.
