Singer Iryn Namubiru, who has been under Japanese police custody over allegations of drug-trafficking, has finally been freed after the court found her innocent.
Namubiru was arrested early this month upon her arrival in Japan at Narita International Airport where she had gone to perform for the Ugandan community there.
However, at the hearing today the court found her not guilty of the charges as the evidence provided by the state was not enough to pin the star to the level of a drug dealer.
"I am so happy! It is the happiest day of my life because Iryn has finally gained her freedom; God thank you for listening to our prayers," said Thadeus Mubiru, the singer's manager and brother.
The 'Begombeko' star is expected to return in the country on Monday.
