South African musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka says she has not been deported from Uganda. This follows reports on social media she was stopped from performing at a New Year’s Eve event and sent back to South Africa.
Police in Uganda confirmed the deportation, saying there was a problem with her visa.
Ugandan police spokesperson Fred Enanga said in a video posted on Twitter that they are hopeful Chaka Chaka will visit the country again “when she applies for the correct visa”.

Chaka Chaka, however, has a different interpretation of events.
She posted a video on Twitter from an unknown location.
“As you can see, I am here, all is well,” she told her fans.
“I took the decision not to appear this evening at Enkuuka because there were just too many things I didn’t understand.
“If somebody had explained it to me, I would have understood.”
Chaka Chaka said she has not been deported, nor arrested.
“Not deported, not arrested, not captured, everything is fine; everything is in order,” she said.
“I know my country is worried, my people are worried, my husband is worried. Everybody is worried. But I am fine.”
