Former Bubulo West MP Tony Nsubuga Kipoi has been extradited back to Uganda from Botswana following his arrest in the south African country.
Kipoi arrived at Entebbe international airport under heavy security. He looked in good shape but was marshaled by guards and his feed were shackled with chains.
Published reports indicate Kipoi was arrested in early February after he was accused of pretending to be a dangerous witch and defrauding Botswana women of more than Shs110million in fake deals.
Kipoi, before he fled Uganda, was facing charges of treason and plotting to overthrow the government.
He was also wanted for kidnapping a South African national and of dealing in narcotic drugs. Under Ugandan law he is presumed innocent until he is convicted by a court of law. He is yet to be charged.
His treason charge alleges that he held a meeting with Congo rebels and errant UPDF soldiers in a guest house in Kabarole District last year with intention to arm them and overthrow the Uganda government.
Government spokesman Ofwono Opondo announced the impending extradition from Botwasna on twitter this morning.
“Fugitive former Bubulo West MP, Tonny Kipoi Nsubuga is due to be delivered at Entebbe this morning 10.20am from Botswana following negotiations by Uganda’s External Security Organisation (ESO),” Opondo tweeted.
