Prossy Kakooza
Jane Mary Mutetsi has left the UK
She was removed last Thursday to Uganda, there was a problem at the airport in Entebbe because she is a Rwandan citizen and the authorities at the airport wanted to return her to the UK because she had no documents entitling her to be in Uganda. Jane Mary was very tired and had a headache throughout her flight, and so mentioned to the authorities that all her children are in Uganda and she was allowed into the country after some discussions. She was also asked why she had been sent back from the UK but apparently one of her escorts told them that her visa had expired and as she is unwell she wanted to go home. At the moment she is safe and well.
Friends of Jane Mary Mutetsi, thank all those who fought to keep Jane Mary in the UK
