Following the arrest of Omah Lei and Thames, one Nigerian woman on Twitter accused Ugandans of discriminating against Nigerians.
The woman described how she was denied a work visa, claiming that the Ugandan authorities kept her passport for 7 months because of the appeal.
A lady on Twitter with the username @politicofareeda also recalled that the slut had shamed her and her lawyer called her “a cunt and a bitch” after refusing to bribe.
Read his thread below;
“I have been living in Uganda for a year. The state is very discriminatory towards Nigerians, do not be today. After being denied a work visa (the first time they did it for the organization I worked for, my predecessors were American / Canadians), they kept my passport for 7 months due to an appeal.
I needed to travel a little and they said that I could cancel the appeal and leave the country permanently or find another Nigerian to present my passport for insurance. They also demanded a bribe of 800,000 UGX. I refused, and my “lawyer” called me a whore.
I became so depressed that I quit my job (the contract for 2 years became 1). After the roll call was canceled, I was transported in an immigration car and escorted to passport control before handing over my passport to me. It looks like I was deported, although I was not. I cried.
So yes. Uganda is terrible for us. I have several stories of horrible treatments in East Africa, but Uganda has definitely taken over. “
