Uganda's Bobi Wine picked up by police on arrival home from US

Uganda's security forces sealed off roads and erected barricades around the country's main worldwide airport on Thursday, ahead of the expected return of a popular lawmaker and critic of President Yoweri Museveni, witnesses said.

A military helicopter has been deployed to patrol Entebbe and its outskirts.

Journalists too have been asked for accreditation from Civil Aviation Authority and those without it have been chased away from the airport checkpoint.

Daily Monitor journalists Andrew Bagala and Alex Esagala, who are in Magere, spoke of "deafening noise" in the neighbourhood.

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.

Ssentamu had sought treatment in the US for injuries allegedly sustained during state torture, which Uganda's government denies.

Mr Kyagulanyi is expected to land at the airport at 12:45pm local time.

Bobi Wine had planned to briefly visit his sick grand mother at Najjanankumbi along Entebbe Road, have lunch with his brothers and sisters at Kamwokya before heading to his home in Magere to meet his family.

He said in a tweet on Wednesday he was "headed home" and showed a picture of himself at an airport holding a walking stick.

Authorities banned rallies to welcome Ssentamu home.

Ugandan security deployed on the streets of the capital and controlled roads leading to the worldwide airport on Thursday ahead of the return MP Robert Kyagulanyi, better known as singer Bobi Wine.

IGP Ochola in a Twitter post denied arresting the legislator, saying the police were instead ensuring his security is safe as they escort him to his Magere based home.

But a police official said he was being escorted to his home and was not under arrest. "Well, for your information, no single family member will receive me at the airport; this impunity must stop now", he wrote.

Before his arrival police detained the singer's brother and at least two other people who were driving to the airport to welcome him home, lawyer Asuman Basalirwa said.

Police had said he would be escorted to his home to avoid public disturbances.

The government denies allegations of corruption and of stifling opposition.
