Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has been banned from entering the Republic of Uganda.
This is after the Ugandan minister of Internal Affairs Haji Abubakar allegedly wrote to Kenya's Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma accusing Babu of undermining President Yoweri Museveni’s government.
In the letter dated November 8, Abubakar wrote that, “Our attention is drawn to the joint subversive activities of Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine and his Kenyan counterpart Babu Owino to undermine the legitimately elected government of the Republic of Uganda,
“The purpose of this letter is to make it known that Honorable Babu Owino is officially declared as persona non grata within the borders of Uganda and will not be permitted entry without special clearance from the Ministry of Internal Affairs,
“During Bobi Wine’s visit to Kenya last month, Babu hosted Wine in a number of functions and events. The duo uttered inflammatory and seditious words against the democratic and legitimate rule of President Yoweri Museveni,
“Any person found aiding or abetting the violation of this directive will be in contravention of a legal order and will be liable for prosecution.”
