Ugandan presidential candidate Bobi Wine has been released on bail after being charged with spreading coronavirus.
The court ruled on Friday after Mr Wine, 38, held a large rally this week.
Human rights groups say the virus charge is a pretext to suppress political opposition ahead of the 14 January election.
Protests broke out and 37 people died in clashes when the politician, also a pop star, was arrested this week.
