In December 2012, the controversial former MP was arrested in Fort Portal, and charged with treason. He was subsequently granted bail and has since been playing a hide and seek game with authorities, while oscillating between countries in the region, till his arrest in Botswana last week.

Also to haunt Kipoi, 40, who was a member of the Ninth Parliament between 2011 and 2014, were allegations drug trafficking and car theft, ostensibly carried out in South Africa.

And today Kipoi was extradited alongside Robert Kitale, a man who has reportedly been helping him acquire passports, and also coordinate his other activities in Uganda and other countries.

By press time the EagleOnline could not get comment from the Police Spokesperson Emilian Kayima, but other sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kipoi will later be handed over to police and likely be charged with treason, the charge he earlier faced before jumping bail.
