"A security task team in close coordination with immigration has today afternoon escorted Ms Mhinga commonly known as Yvonne Chaka Chaka to Entebbe global airport where she boarded her next immediate flight to South Africa through Kigali Rwanda after her ordinary visa was cancelled by immigration officials after realising that she had come to perform at one of the end of year concerts." said Enanga.

Earlier, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA ) suggested that petroleum price products should increase by up to 3.2%. The government has given a gift to the people on New Year 's Eve by increasing the price of petroleum products.
Enanga explained that Chaka Chaka together with her promoters were afterwards advised to apply for a working visa since the ordinary visa doesn't enable her to perform or engage in any income generating activities in the country. It was also alleged that Abitex's phone was confiscated in the process.
She added: "I can assure u. i will come back to Uganda and perform".
Reports indicate that Chaka Chaka's hotel was raided by several security authorities on Tuesday morning and ordered to leave.

During a recent visit to Uganda, Chaka Chaka heaped praises on Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine.
She referred to him as the Nelson Mandela of Uganda.
Chaka Chaka has also previously endorsed presidential Bobi Wine to take on President Yoweri Museveni in the 2021 general elections.

She assured her "worried" country, fans and husband that "everything is fine" and that it is her who took the decision not to perform at Enkuuka because so many things had not been explained to her.
