Renowned blogger Fred Kajubi, alias Lumbuye has been deported. He is expected back into the country on Saturday morning, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Henry Okello Oryem says.
Lumbuye, will be interrogated by the state security agents after arrival before being taken for prosecution.
The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Henry Okello Oryem said while addressing the media at the Ministry headquarters in Kampala.
The blogger was arrested by authorities in Turkey earlier this week. He and a host of other Ugandans were arrested on grounds that their immigration documents had expired.
The arrest follows a directive by President Yoweri Museveni that Security investigates those who announced him dead.
Last Month, Lumbuye and a host of other social media pundits announced that President Yoweri Museveni had died, only for the president to resurface at a state function.
The blogger had previously announced the death of several high-profile people, insinuated illicit acts on several Ugandans said to have been untrue.
Several political leaders including the President of the National Unity Platform party Robert Kyagulanyi have condemned his arrest.
However, several Human Rights activists have remained tight-lipped on the arrest of the blogger on grounds that he has severally, immorally deliberated against several state officials.
Parliamentary Commissioner, also MP for Mityana Municipality Francis Zaake, earlier this week flew to Ankara, Turkey to secure Lumbuye’s unconditional release.
However, all his efforts were not fruitful. Lumbuye is said to have been an opposition enthusiast, orchestrating malice and untruthful propaganda against the State in Uganda.
