Muwada Nkunyingi who traveled to Turkey immediately after the news of Lumbuye’s arrest in Turkey emerged, fruitlessly traversed all police stations in Turkey looking for Lumbuye. He issued a statement indicating that he had made all efforts to trace Lumbuye to no avail.
Uganda’s state minister for foreign affairs was put to task to reveal where Lumbuye was because he had earlier stated that Lumbuye was due to board a plane en-route to Uganda for deportation, journalists thronged Entebbe Airport to captture events of Lumbuy’e arrival but he never showed up.
State Minister Okello Oryem distanced himself by denying confirmation of Lumbuye’s travel itinerary. Since then speculation has been flying high until today when Muwada Nkunyingi revealed his meeting out come with the Turkish Kampala Ambassador. This website is privileged to reproduce it here below.
