It was earlier reported that the singer was initially detained at Pearl of Africa Hotel in Nakasero where she had apparently spent the night and that no one was in contact with her, not even Abitex (music promoter) who organized the show. It was also alleged that Abitex's phone was also confiscated in the process.
Police spokesperson, Mr Fred Enanga has confirmed that the artiste was deported ongrounds that she did not have a Working Visa to Uganda.
"This is to inform the public that a security task team in close coordination with immigration officials has this afternoon escorted Ms Mhinga Yvonne, popularly known as Chaka Chaka to Entebbe International Airport, where she boarded her next immediate flight to South Africa, via Kigali," he said.
Mr Enanga added that the Musician had initially been granted an ordinary visa which was cancelled by immigration officials after it was realised she had come as a performing artiste in one of the New Year events.
"She was advised together with her promoters to apply for a working visa and avoid the pretence of being an ordinary visitor. The ordinary visa cannot enable her to perform in any income-generating activity within the country," he said.
"This has been done by the immigration officials with the security team to help maintain the integrity of our immigration rules," he added.

Uganda is east Africa. Not south Africa.
South Africa also deport Uganda if they have no permit.


Before you blame. Let all African agree that Africans is not foreigners in Africa.

But no one agreed. Hon Julius malema is fighting for that till now.
It's only Buhari who said any Africa national to come Nigeria 2020 without visa . Only come with your international passport. Africa divided into 4.
1. West Africans can visit any west Africa countries
2. East Africans to visit east Africa countries
3. South Africans to visit south Africa countries
4 north Africans to visit northern Africa countries without visa.
Any other way to visit outside without visa is between agreement with your country. Until we learn to agree we're not foreigners in Africa... deportation will not stop. Seeking visa will not stop.
