On Aug. 13, Museveni’s soldiers beat and tortured opposition leaders and their supporters. One victim, Bobi Wine, who had to travel to the U.S. for medical care, is a member of parliament and a rising political star. Like West, he’s also a musical phenomenon. On his Facebook page, Wine described how he was beaten with an iron bar while his genitals were squeezed until he lost consciousness. His friend and driver, Yasin Kawuma, was shot dead.
