{UAH} Heavy security deployment at Entebbe ahead of Bobi Wine return

There is heavy deployment of security personnel from both Police and UPDF along Entebbe road as well as at the airport ahead of the return of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

There is tight security check at the airport and people who are not intending to travel have been denied access into the airport.
Journalists too have been asked for accreditation from Civil Aviation Authority and those without it have been chased away from the airport checkpoint.

Bobi Wine who has been in America for close to three weeks seeking specialized treatment following his alleged torture, is expected to touch the ground at Entebbe International Airport at 12:45pm.

This reporter has learnt that journalists from different media houses who were still travelling from Kampala to the Entebbe Airport have been arrested and detained at Kisubi Police station.
A military helicopter has been deployed to patrol Entebbe and its outskirts.

Daily Monitor learnt that senior officers from police, army, Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence, Internal Security Organisation and military police on Wednesday evening met at the Kampala Central Police Station boardroom to work out finer deployment plans to ensure law and order prevails.
Police had earlier in the day banned any processions for the MP's homecoming and said they would pick him from the airport, offer security and deliver him directly to his home in Magere, Wakiso District.

In a written statement read by police spokesperson Emilian Kayima, the Force said they would only allow the MP's immediate family to receive him on arrival and that no one has notified the Force for a crowd event as required under the Public Order Management Act.


"He will be availed security from the airport to his home. Police will further ensure law and order [for] all road users. There shall be no unlawful rallies, processions and assemblies," Mr Kayima said.

However, shortly after the police pronouncement, Mr Kyagulanyi, who was at the time at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, tweeted and posted on his Facebook page messages denouncing the directive.
"I am wondering why these police officers allow themselves to descend so low. They now want to decide who picks me and where I go upon arrival! Well, for your information, no single family member will receive me at the airport; this impunity must stop now," he wrote.

The MP's lawyers Mr Nicholas Opiyo, Mr Asuman Basalirwa and Mr Andrew Karamagi, at a separate press conference in the city's upscale Kololo neighbourhood, announced that they would instead be at the airport in person to receive him because he is still a "suspect". 
Mr Kyagulanyi's supporters and relatives also said their parallel arrangements will go on as planned.
"We shall receive Bobi Wine at home [in Kamwokya, a Kampala suburb] and have a family meal together, pray and sing for him before we take him back to his home in Magere," Mr Fred Nyanzi, the lawmaker's elder brother, said.

Under the original plan, the legislator, would upon arrival, be chauffeured to Najjanankumbi, on the Entebbe highway, to check on his ailing grandmother and head to Kamwokya for prayers and blessings before deciding whether to report to Parliament or head home.

"Erdogate": Germany's Turkish Superstar

  • Two German national soccer team players of Turkish origin had a photo-op with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and gave signed club shirts as gifts to him. One of the shirts bore the message (in Turkish): "With respect to my president. Yours faithfully".

  • After the first exit poll, thousands of Turks in German cities took to the streets, honked car horns and waved Turkish and AKP flags, celebrating Erdogan's election victory until well after midnight.

  • "When do you finally realize that the most important requirements for integration are not language and upward mobility, but emotional bonds and identifying with the country in which one lives?" — Hamed Abdel-Samad, German-Egyptian political scientist.

Ilkay Gündoğan, who played for the German national soccer team in this year's World Cup, posed for a photo-op with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan shortly before the tournament. Gündoğan -- who holds only German citizenship -- gave Erdogan a signed shirt bearing the message (in Turkish): "With respect to my president. Yours faithfully".

This summer, the German public began to realize that there are hundreds of thousands of Germans of Turkish origin who revere as their leader not German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Riyadh investigates Saudi woman who 'forced housemaid to drink bleach'

Agnes Mancilla was subjected to numerous forms of abuse by her employer, doctors found, after she was hospitalised forcefully drinking bleach.
A case has been opened against a Saudi woman who allegedly forced her housemaid to drink bleach as a punishment for not preparing tea properly earlier this year.

The Philippines foreign ministry on Thursday announced that Saudi authorities filed a case against the unnamed woman who forced domestic worker Agnes Mancilla, 35, to drink household bleach, after she had allegedly made a mistake preparing tea on April 2.

Agnes, who began working in Saudi Arabia in 2016, was found unconscious by members of the Filipino community in the port city of Jizan who rushed her to King Fahad Hospital where she was treated for her serious internal injuries and put into intensive care.

Prior to forcing Agnes to drink bleach, her employer forced her to work 20 hours a day, denied her payment and deprived her of food, only giving her coffee for meals, according to Philippines Consul General to Jeddah Edgar Badajos.

At the time of her treatment, doctors said they found burn marks on Agnes' back, hinting her employer has a record of physically abused her.

"We are counting on our Saudi friends in ensuring that our kababayan (countryfolk) would be able to obtain justice for the unthinkable deed committed against her," Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter S. Cayetano added.

Institutional abuse

Saudi Arabia, along with other Arab countries have a track record of institutionalising abuse against foreign domestic workers, forcing them to live in slave-like conditions.

Rights groups have voiced alarm over the plight of workers in the Gulf and other Arab countries, where migrant labour is regulated under a system known as "kafala". 

The Middle East's Gulf region has an estimated 2.4 million migrant domestic workers, the majority from Asia and Africa. They fall under the kafala ("visa sponsorship") system, forbidding them to leave or change employers without their initial employer's consent.

If they do, they can be arrested and punished for "absconding" with fines, detention and deportation.

The isolating and harsh working conditions often, though not always, lead to workers being treated as property of their employers – leaving the worker vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
