Immigration Finally Breaks Silence On Lumbuye’s Deportation

Immigration Finally Breaks Silence On Lumbuye’s Deportation

Uganda’s immigration has dismissed claims that Turkish-based blogger Fred Kajubi Lumbuye was deported by authorities from Turkey.

On Friday last week, the State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Henry Okello Oryem said Lumbuye who was allegedly arrested in Turkey would be deported to Uganda by Saturday morning, however, since then, the government has not confirmed his arrival, and his whereabouts are still unknown.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs spokesperson, Jacob Siminyu has however said they have not received any passenger in the names of Lumbuye in their records at Entebbe Airport.

“I don’t have any information pertaining the arrival or entry of Lumbuye. I don’t have any information indicating that Lumbuye entered Uganda. When we get it, we shall let you know,” Siminyu said on Monday.

Oryem further noted that Lumbuye would be subjected to questioning to answer several charges.

“Lumbuye will be deported to Uganda tomorrow(Saturday) morning. On arrival he will be put in custody and later brought to book for inciting sectarianism using social media,” the minister said.

Nobody is above the law, including me. Lumbuye and his friends will have to pay the price. They will be interrogated and then prosecuted in court depending on the charges preferred by the DPP.” Oryem said.

The latest statement by immigration seems to point to an uncoordinated troop movement in government.

Police on Monday said whereas Lumbuye is not yet in their custody, there are 15 case files awaiting him for using the internet to allegedly cite violence and spreading harmful propaganda.
