In a telephone interview, Mr Emilian Kayima, police spokesperson said he will issue a statement to the effect.

"Yes, they have been cleared but don't hurry, I will issue a statement in the next few minutes," Mr Kayima said.

Mr Fred Nyanzi, Bobi Wine's elder brother said they would leave the country tonight if nothing goes amiss.

"Bobi has been cleared and we want him to travel tonight. We are heading to Entebbe to book the next flight to USA," Mr Nyanzi said.
