Former MP Tony Kipoi Nsubuga faces a raft of charges, including treason, following his deportation from Botswana.

The plane carrying the former Bubulo West representative in Parliament touched down at Entebbe airport on Saturday from Botswana where he was this week charged with obtaining money by false pretence for allegedly defrauding four women of Shs113m.

And now, the legislator, who was kicked out of Parliament in 2014 for skipping more than 15 sittings without explanation, is expected to first face trial before the General Court Martial, which had charged him with treason. In 2012, the army court charged Kipoi with treason for allegedly recruiting rebels to overthrow the government of Uganda.

He will also face theft charges after he had been arrested in 2013 for allegedly dealing in stolen motor vehicles. He had jumped bail.

He is also expected to be tried for the charge of obtaining money by false pretence, for which he has been charged in Botswana. It is alleged that he posed as a witchdoctor capable of helping his victims obtain jobs and get married.
