Singer Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo has once again revealed that he has lost hope of returning to Uganda.
In his social media post on Friday, the multi-award winning singer expressed dissatisfaction that some Ugandans stranded abroad because of Covid-19 are being repatriated back home but for him, he is being sidelined.
I see flights taking people back to Uganda but some of us have lost hope. They forgot about us,” the ‘semyekozo’ singer who is stranded in Ivory Coast asserted.
Since March, Kenzo has been crying for government’s intervention to have him repatriated but to no avail up to date.
The singer’s complaint comes days after the arrival of the first group of Ugandans who landed into the country from Turkey, on Monday. 32 nationals also returned from Sudan on Tuesday and 16 more returned from Belgium and Netherlands on Tuesday night.
Henry Okello Oryem, the minister of state for foreign affairs, noted that 70 Ugandans are expected to be flown from Southern Africa while 200 would come in from the United Arab Emirates.
“From Afghanistan, we expect 108 Ugandans, 134 from the US and 120 from India,” noted Oryem.
While receiving the group of Ugandans that returned from Sudan on Tuesday evening, Oryem said that 2,392 Ugandans were earlier registered as being stranded from 66 different foreign countries, hence needed to return home.
“A work plan has been developed to allow the return of an average 300 persons every fortnight, all of whom will have to be tested before being quarantined,” remarked Oryem.
