Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) have summoned managers of Salt Television to respond to allegations of broadcasting abusive content.
The TV station owned by controversial pastor Aloysius Bujingo was reported to the commission for “carrying abusive content directed towards Teddy Naluswa,” the pastor’s estranged wife.
UCC expects the television managers at its offices on Tuesday next week at 10am.
The commission also ordered the station to provide all recordings of content broadcast on Salt TV between May 16th and July 16th 2019.
“These recordings should be submitted to the commission not later than Friday 19th July 2019,” goes the letter to the Salt Media managers seen by this site.
On top of this, Salt Media managers have been ordered to submit a written defence to these accusations by Monday next week.
Bujingo over the past months has been using his media to attack Mrs Naluswa who he accuses among others of trying to take his property.
Last week however, he took the attacks at another level when he publicly remarked about their sexual life during their decades-long marriage.
The comments sparked public outrage.
A group of activists held a protest at the station offices on Monday this week, which ended violently.
Two journalists were injured after being attacked by their Salt Media colleagues.
Police as well as the Uganda Journalists Association are separately investigating this incident.
