The total number of 280 people are among the 1,000 Ugandans in United Arab Emirates who were recorded to be returned back home.
The Ugandan Ambassador in UAE Mr Kibedi Wanume Zaake told Newslex Point that those to be repatriated are mainly the workers who lost their jobs and business people who were short stay visitors and those on transit.
He mentioned that the rest of the stranded Ugandans will be picked up in the next three weeks.
“I salute the patience shown by these stranded citizens here and praise the government for their positive response to fly them back,” he added.
2 weeks back, these stranded Ugandan nationals in dubai, while interacting with Mr Zaake, criticized the government for it’s failure to respond towards their request to be repatriated.
Dozens of Ugandans in countries like Afghanistan, South Sudan, Holland and etc have been repatriated.
All the above total number of returnees will be put under quarantine in city hotels of their choice at their own cost for a period of fourteen days.
