An American Woman was at the weekend arrested and deported on allegations of using her NGO to fund activities of Kyadodndo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, this website has learnt.

Ms Jackie Wolfson has been running an NGO that supports vulnerable children in the country but authorities say she has been using the same NGO to fund Bobi Wine’s People Power.

According to Mr Nicholas Opiyo, Ms Wolfson Jackie Wolfson of the Shule Foundation was arrested on the weekend & deported by the Ugandan authorities via a KLM flight out of Entebbe at 11.45pm on Sunday.

Mr Opiyo who describes the accusations against Ms Wolfson as baseless adds that paperwork was signed before her arrest.

Wolfson recently organised a charity concert featuring South African legendary artiste Yvonne Chaka Chaka. At the concert, Bobi Wine got showered in praise and Chaka Chaka named him Uganda’s Mandela and encouraged him to keep fighting Museveni’s regime.

This website has also learnt that Ms Anne Whitehead of Canadian decent and former public relations manager for Bobi Wine has also left the country under similar circumstances.
