Ugandan Authorities have confirmed the deportation of Jacqueline Wolfson after being accused of funding Afro-beat star-cum-politician MP Bobi Wine.
The deportation of Wolfson arose after a controversial article that was titled as “Understanding The Foreign Hand In Bobi Wine’s Rise And Politics” that cited her as “a calculating political operative and lobbyist”.
The confirmation of her deportation came just a few days following rumors that suggested she had fled the country without anyone’s knowledge.
Wolfson is the founder of Shule Foundation an NGO helping Ugandan street kids by funding their education.
The Ugandan Authorities furthermore revealed that Wolfson violated the immigration laws since she holds a tourist visa, and at the same time was cited “passing as a charity giver”.
The government spokesperson Mr Ofwono Opondo, however, maintained that Wolfson has no record at the immigration that permits her to work in Uganda.

Wolfson rose to fame in Uganda since Bobi Wine won the Kyadondo East MP seat and was cited as one of the silent women behind his landslide victory but kept her a low profile.
