Ugandan boxer Daku Andaman aka Tata Kaliro, who is based in Amsterdam, is in detention after he was arrested over the weekend, shortly after landing at Entebbe International Airport.

Daku flew to Uganda ahead of a boxing match dubbed the Super Heavyweight Fight, slated for April 14th, 2022, at which he is slated to fight Marcus Warry, a Briton.

The Super Heavyweight Fight hangs in balance after Daku’s arrest

Sources close to Daku revealed that he confirmed his detention to them last night, saying that he is being detained over allegations that he and other National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters staged a demonstration against the government of Uganda while in Amsterdam.

Daku, according to sources, has been kept incommunicado since his arrest, after police detectives at the airport confiscated his phones, laptop and passport, claiming they are to aid their investigation.

It is not yet clear when the said demonstrations were staged by Daku and others and the police are yet to issue an official statement about his arrest.

However, Daku’s arrest has since left  his match with Marcus hanging in balance, because it is not yet clear whether he would have been released by Thursday, the day the match is slated to take place.

Daku and Marcus’ fight, which is to be held at the MTN Arena in Lugogo, is a memorial boxing match that is aimed at remembering two boxing legends; Kent and Katende.
