Currently trapped in Ivory Coast, famed singer Eddy Kenzo, real names Edirisa Musuuza has lost hope of returning back home in his mother country, Uganda.
While addressing parliament last month, Sam Kutesa, Uganda's minister of foreign affairs, said the Government was committed to allowing Ugandans stranded abroad to return home in a phased and orderly manner.
Following Kutesa's address, several Ugandans have been returned home and currently being quarantined at different isolation centres. The first group of Ugandans were flown into the country from Turkey, on Monday, whereas 32 nationals returned from Sudan on Tuesday. More 16 Ugandans also 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.
Kenzo who has been held up for almost three months due to the closure of borders occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic is now hopeless of returning home as he believes that he might have been forgotten by the government in power.
"Ndaba flights zileta abantu e'uganda Naye fe nga tetulina yadde esuubi. Mwatwerabira banange🤔," Eddy Kenzo lamented in a Luganda dialect through his socials.
