The police say South African singer, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, humanitarian and teacher, Yvonne Machaka alias Yvonne Chaka Chaka entered in Uganda on a wrong visa.
Chaka Chaka was set to perform at Buganda Kingdom/CBS organized annual event, Enkuuka.
However, she was arrested Tuesday and deported.
Speaking to this news site, Police spokesman Fred Enanga said Chaka Chaka entered Uganda on an ordinary Visa yet she is in the country on an income generating activity.
“An ordinary visa can’t allow her to perform in any income generating activity,” Enanga said.
According to police, Chaka Chaka should have flown in on a working visa.
Subsequently, on advice of immigration, she was escorted to Entebbe International Airport Tuesday afternoon and deported by security tasked team and immigration.
