  • Description

    Asians leaving Uganda have complained of rigorous searches by customs officers at Entebbe Airport on the way out.

    Some say all their Ugandan money was confiscated and they had to leave penniless. Jewellery, watches and other personal goods were also confiscated.

    Others have said they were forced to strip to be searched and one young man reaching Britain, claimed that his hair was forcibly cut with broken glass.

    A party of Ugandan Asians who passed through Nairobi Airport in Kenya on Thursday (31 August) bound for India told reporters of the treatment they received as they left Uganda.
