At least 37 people lost their lives in Uganda, police pathologist Moses Byaruhanga said on Friday, after protests erupted following the arrest on Wednesday of presidential candidate and singer Bobi Wine.

Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, was arrested on Wednesday while campaigning in eastern Uganda for allegedly holding mass rallies in violation of restrictions on gatherings imposed by the government to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

“Yes, 37 bodies have been counted so far,” Byaruhanga said as cited by Reuters.
