Injured Ghetto TV Cameraman Ashraf Kasirye Rushed to Masaka Hospital

Saif-llah Ashraf Kasirye, a Radio One journalist and an online Ghetto TV cameraman has sustained serious facial injuries during a clash between police and supporters of presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi.

Kasirye, whose face was covered in blood, was rushed to Masaka Hospital in an NTV truck.

Bobi said Kasirye what shot but medics later established that he was injured by a teargas canister.

The chaotic scenes occurred as Bobi was leaving Masaka district where he attended church to Lwengo, Bukomansimbi and Mpigi.

Pictures show an unconscious Kasirye being lifted by People Power supporters to a vehicle which sped off to Masaka hospital.

NTV journalist Ali Mivule also was injured by a teargas canister as police dispersed Bobi’s crowds.

He was rushed to a medical facility in Masaka in a stable condition.

Police were yet to comment on the development.

Bobi’s supporters have clashed with security forces since the beginning of the presidential campaigns in November, 2020.

Police accuse Bobi of flouting COVID-19 prevention guidelines by holding rallies while the presidential candidate says the law enforcement body is using excessive force to disperse his supporters.

Contrary to social media reports that Kasirye had passed on, ChimpReports has established he’s still alive but in stable condition after receiving treatment.
