Famous Singer Edirisa Musuuza, aka Eddy Kenzo was part of the group of 56 Ugandans who had been stranded in West Africa who returned home in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
By the time the pandemic broke out, Kenzo had gone to Ivory Coast for a music concert.
On Saturday morning, the group landed at Entebbe International Airport at 1:15am aboard Uganda Airlines flight number UR212 before being welcomed by officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Uganda Airlines, Ministry of Health and Civil Aviation Authority.
Following their return, the group was taken for mandatory 14 days quarantine as one of the ways to combat the spread of Coronavirus.
Government recently said a total of 2300 Ugandans stranded in various countries across the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic would be returned home.
The exercise that started over a month ago has seen over 1000 Ugandans who had been stranded in South Africa, Eswatini, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, UAE, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Sudan and Turkey and India return home.
