National Unity Platform – NUP President Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu better known as Bobi Wine has been blocked from travelling to the United States of America, The Tower Post reports.

Kyagulanyi who had already left Uganda was stopped in Doha, Qatar and brought back to Uganda on Thursday morning. According to a statement posted on NUP website, Kyagulanyi was travelling to the United States to attend the party’s Diaspora events including the Uganda Action Day and Convention which were scheduled this weekend.

“When I got to Doha in Qatar, it was noted that I was in South Africa less than two weeks back. Apparently, there are still Coronavirus related restrictions for anyone who has been in South Africa (and a host of other countries) from proceeding to the United States until after fourteen days,” Kyagulanyi wrote in the statement.

“Unfortunately, officials at Entebbe hadn’t advised about that on my exit. It is on that account that I had to cancel my onward travel to USA and return to Uganda this morning.”

“This notwithstanding, the planned activities this weekend will proceed. There are several NUP leaders who are already in the US including Hon. Zaake Francis, Hon. Kayemba Solo and Chairman Nyanzi. Other NUP leaders are also on their way to take part in the activities.”

“I will also be part of the event virtually, together with a team of leaders who are not able to travel for one reason or another. I apologise for any inconveniences this may cause to all of you who anticipated my physical presence at the Convention and other events.”

Several countries have restriction on their citizens or any person that visits from entering the United States due to the raging Covid19 pandemic.

Kyagulanyi however promised his fans and followers that he would travel in the coming weeks after the 14days have elapsed. By Paul Mugume, The Tower Post
