KAMPALA - The ministry of internal affairs has denied issuing a passport to Tito Cabello, a son to Venezuela's National Assembly leader Diosdado Cabello.
This comes after Daily Mail; a British tabloid reported that Cabello was flown from Cuba to China using a Ugandan passport under a fake name, Tito Contreras, following political tension in the country. The article titled "Venezuelan President Maduro's right hand man evacuates his two youngest children to China under fake names," has been circulating on social media.
According to a statement signed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs spokesperson, Jacob Siminyu, the allegations are unfounded.
"The ministry wishes to categorically dismiss the allegations as false and the public is therefore notified to disregard the story and allegations therein," the statement reads.
Diosdado Cabello is known to be the second most powerful man in Venezuela behind embattled President Nicolas Maduro.
