(CNN)Ugandan youth movement leader Bobi Wine has arrived in the United States for medical treatment after being blocked from travel earlier in the week by Ugandan police, the pop star-turned-MP confirmed in a tweet Saturday.

Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, posted a photo of himself at an airport on Twitter and Facebook. In the photo, he is seated in a wheelchair.
An attorney for Wine, Robert Amsterdam, told CNN that Wine arrived in Boston, and will later travel to Washington.
