Ugandan MP Bobi Wine landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi on Thursday morning and is now enroute to Entebbe. He is expected to arrive at the Ugandan airport at around 1pm. ““I landed safely in Kenya and I’m happily waiting on my last and final destination flight to Entebbe. My touchdown is at midday. I’m appalled to learn of the arrests that have happened. Security should release all people they have in their custody for nothing,” NBS reporter Mujuni Raymond quoted him on Twitter.

I still intend to meet my relatives, have lunch in Kamwokya. I’m coming home no matter the intimidation and threat,” he added. This amidst reports that security has been heightened ahead of his arrival and journalists barred from accessing the area. His brother Eddie Yawe had also been allegedly arrested on his way to Entebbe Airport to receive him.
