Then, he wrote on his Facebook account: “Uganda my peeps help me and contact the embassy am locked in a Jamaican cell in Montego bay. Munyambe. (I) have no help here,”
Upon his release he took to social media to thank Bobi Wine, his (Vampino’s) wife and and others who came to his rescue. Below is his appreciation post”
Guys I reached at a point I lost hope in a rom of seven guys with piss and sh*t next to where I put my head. Nobody knew then what’s happening and they took all my belongings.
The message I sent a guard was convinced by the jailed thugs some on murder charges, rape, gun cases, theft. They told him” help di African he is innocent,” that’s when I called you all out nga mpulila am at a dead end.
My wife Lydia Namakula Swe and manager Kojja LuCha and Pejay Boaz thanks alot guys. Am now being escorted on a flight out of Jamaica Montego bay.
The reason I was put there is because they had no flight direct to Africa so they threw me in jail instead of a hotel. God…I love you all am safe. Good I had finished what took me out there.
