City socialite Judith Heard is furious after she was denied a visa to Thailand.
Heard, who was supposed to go for a Valentine’s Day holiday, accuses Barbara Mulwana, the Thailand Honorary Consulate in Uganda for misconduct.
Judith Heard posted on her social media pages, accusing Mulwana of using her office for personal business.
“This woman has turned the office of the Thai Honorary Consulate into her vendetta business. She is no longer issuing Visas on merit – She even bragged to her receptionist that if someone isn’t in my good book – No Visa!”
“Today she denied everyone who applied for the Visa (15 People) just because they were going to a party in Thailand,” reads Heard’s post.
“She then closed the office and said she would return on the 10th Feb 2020 – Indicating that if you need a visa to Thailand urgently, you won’t get it. Thailand is a holiday destination and Visas should be readily attainable, but our cold-hearted Ugandans are again disfranchising fellow Ugandans,” she wrote.
The model however blamed some of the Ugandan officials for misconduct and misuse of office.
She added, “What’s wrong with Ugandans? Someone gives you an office to serve people and you abuse those powers like some Demi-god? You treat fellow Ugandans like they are beneath you just because you have the mandate to issue visas?
To make matters worse, I have it on good authority that she has also instructed the Kenyan Thai Consulate to deny any Ugandan who reapplies in Kenya.”
According to Heard, the Thailand Authorities advised that if one has a hotel, flight, 500 BHT per day, a visa shouldn’t be denied.
