Kabale Radio Probed by UCC Over Besigye Talk Show

Uganda Communications Commission (UCC0 are investigating a Kabale based radio station that recently hosted FDC’s Col Dr Kizza Besigye on a night talk show.

Freedom Radio hosted Dr Besigye early this month, when the opposition strongman visited the south western municipality to counter the message of President Yoweri Museveni on land matters.

Dr Besigye was initially scheduled that day to appear on Voice of Kigezi, only to be blocked on the last minute by the area Resident District Commissioner.

He decided to go to Freedom FM where he was hosted from 09:30pm -11:00pm on September 9th.

UCC says following the show, they received a number of complaints that Dr Besigye utilized the opportunity to incite the people of Kabale.

UCC executive director Eng Godfrey Mutabazi, in a letter dated 19th September 2017  to the Managing Director Freedom Radio Justus Orishaba Bagamuhunda, directed him to submit recordings of the entire show.

He added that commission had commenced investigations into the matter, and that the recordings must be submitted by close of business on Friday yesterday.
