Following our effort to repatriate Ugandans stuck in the Middle East, we were informed yesterday that authorities in UAE asked all Ugandans who have been detained at Al Warsan Detention for their passports and other travel documents. They quickly embarked on the process of verifying their documents and today over a hundred of them have been repatriated. They were told that the UAE government had decided to repatriate them following the outcry and media attention we have given to their plight! We are absolutely grateful to the authorities there for taking such an important step.
Over 100 of them have been repatriated! Clearly our effort and speaking out on this issue has paid off! Super delighted to see them back home from slavery. Unfortunately, most of them were hijacked by regime operatives at the airport and driven off to Kitooro in Entebbe and abandoned there. Our teams are working hard to assist them and ensure that they get to their homes safely. Even then, there are those who managed to come straight to the National Unity Platform Headquarters and were received by several leaders, as well as my wife Barbie Kyagulanyi.
They spoke about the humiliating conditions they have been living under, and expressed gratitude for being home again.
There are still hundreds of Ugandans stuck in detention, while others are on the streets in the Middle East. Let’s continue doing whatever we can to speak about their plight but also assist them in every way possible to return home.
