Fast-rising Ugandan comedian, MC Mariach’s dream of visiting the UK was shattered last week when he and singers, David Lutalo and Maureen Nantongo were denied visas to the Queen’s land, where they were scheduled to hold a show over the weekend. Mariach and the singers had a rough day at the British High Commission in Kampala on Thursday, when they were denied visas, something which left them upset. It is not clear why the three were denied visas but some suspect it must have been due to the recent outbreak of yellow fever in the country. UK visas are the hardest to get. In 2014 singer, Bobi Wine was also denied a visa to visit the UK after gay rights campaigners accused him of inciting homophobic attacks in his song lyrics.
