Paul Mubiru, the man appearing in the viral video selling grasshoppers on Uganda Airlines Flight UR 446 has apologized to Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Uganda Airlines and Ministry of Works and Transport.
Through an apology later directed to CAA, Uganda Airlines and Ministry of Works and Transport, the 27 year old says he recorded the video selling the Nsenene for purposes of getting a huge following on the famous Tiktok app.
“I am so sorry bro the fellow countrymen and women, the staff of Uganda Airlines, passengers and everyone hurt by the act on board. I recorded that video in question not to tarnish or shame the Airline, the country or the passengers on board but for comedy purposes specifically Tiktok deeds. What appears as vending in the video was all for comical purposes but never for transactional gains,” Says Mubiru in the letter.
After the flight video went viral, The Minister of State for Works and Transport, Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala ordered for immediate against the Uganda Airlines’ staff who were on duty while Mubiru was vending grasshoppers on board.
