NBS TV’s Samson Kasumba Trends on Twitter after Porn Video Attack

Controversial NBS TV news anchor Samson Kasumba is trending on Twitter after suspected hackers posted porn on his timeline.

Kasumba ignited a social media firestorm when he posted on Twitter a comment praising his workmate Canary Mugume as hardworking.

“If half the young people were half as hard working as you are, a quarter as passionate as you are, two thirds as committed as you are and three quarters as patient as you are @CanaryMugume I don’t know where Uganda would be,” said Kasumba on Wednesday, adding, “You stand out in a generation with wrong values. Proud.”

This attracted attacks from the young people who claimed Mugume was favoured and had exposure of the television which the rest lacked.

Kasumba quickly joined the debate to defend Mugume.

The topic trended on Twitter as young people fired salvos as Kasumba.

Later in the night, a pornographic video appeared on Kasumba’s timeline – a development that excited his youthful critics.

The youth used hilarious memes to ridicule Kasumba, who has in recent years attracted considerable following due to his antics and stunts on television.

An official at NBS said Kasumba’s “account was hacked, and some inappropriate content was shared. Our digital team, headed by @deejahn, has since sorted the issue. We sympathize with Sam. Apologies to those that look up to him that had to see that.”

Kasumba, who was earlier this year arrested by police, suggested that unauthorized person/s could have had access to his Twitter password.

“I am only responsible for what I do. Ever since I handed over my passwords to security of all my gadgets I do not believe I am the only one operating my accounts,” said Kasumba.

Kasumba’s dynamic and distinctive style has made him a unique figure in the field of broadcasting in Uganda, bridging the gap between hard news and entertaining television.
