S.Africans furious after Uganda deports musician

It had also been said that nobody had been in contact with her, not even music promoter Abitex, who organised the show. But this was cancelled at the eleventh hour.

According to Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, Chaka Chaka was escorted to Entebbe airport by the police and a team from the immigration department on Tuesday afternoon after being detained inside her room at Pearl of Africa hotel.

Own Correspondent|There are some unusual aspects to the hasty departure of South African singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka from Uganda on New Year's Eve.

South African music legend Yvonne Chaka Chaka cleared up all confusion over claims that she had been deported from Uganda on New Year's Eve where she was due to perform at an event.

Enanga told the press that Chaka Chaka had come to Uganda on an ordinary tourist visa which doesn't permit her to perform in any income-generating activities.

"She was advised along with her promoters to apply for a working visa to perform a working visa for her music performance and avoid the pretense of being an ordinary visitor which can not enable her to perform in any income generating activities within the country".

"It was done by our officials so that we maintain the integrity of our immigration rules for all visitors to our country".

Yvonne Chaka Chaka has responded to the police's claims that she was deported and says that she is still in Uganda but chose not to perform.

A journalist narrates his experience with police while trying to access the musician following her arrival in Uganda.

Reports indicate that Chaka Chaka's hotel was raided by several security authorities on Tuesday morning and ordered to leave.

However, other sources say her deportation is linked to her association with firebrand musician cum politician Bobi Wine and had rejected a demand to stay away from political messages at the concert.

The legendary singer revealed that the Kyadondo East MP is a very much admired icon in South Africa and is often likened to South Africa's apartheid freedom fighter Nelson Mandela.

President Museveni is seeking a sixth term in office in 2021 after being in power for 33 years. Today global icon Yvonne Chaka Chaka was deported from Uganda. She had made a decision to return home, she claimed, because she did "not understand" what was happening. "Everybody is anxious. But I am fine".

The singer also reassured fans and followers - in the video posted on Twitter - that she was "fine".
