Uganda opposition leader Kizza Besigye 'allowed home'
Ugandan opposition leader Kizza Besigye has told the BBC he has now been allowed to return home after saying hours earlier he had been barred.
Initially he said he was prevented from boarding a flight from Nairobi to Uganda after receiving medical treatment in Kenya.
Uganda's information minister, Kabakumba Matsiko, told the BBC the government had not told Kenya Airways to stop Dr Besigye from boarding its flight from Nairobi to Entebbe, outside Kampala.
Dr Besigye said he had been issued with a new boarding pass and intended to travel on a flight from Nairobi to Entebbe later on Wednesday.
