Published

on

Hon. Kati Lubwama

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has suspended the Koona show that airs on Spark TV every Friday the Grapevine has learnt.

The suspension comes  after Lubaga South legislator Hon. Kato Lubwama lost his cool and jabbed a fellow panelist on air in that show which aired December 21, on Spark TV and saw also Hon. Lubwama swing a slap while deep in altercation with Events Promoter, Andrew Bajjo. Lubwama would then kick away the table before standing up and throwing a few more jabs at Bajjo and marching off the show in protest.

Following the live-on –air interview turned ring side, UCC elaborated that; “These are unacceptable behaviour that infringes broadcasting standards. Broadcasters are expected to have mechanisms in place to edit out such inappropriate content. The Commission has noted this and will be dealing with the same decisively,” and  now the Commission claims that the specific show breached minimum broadcasting standard hence suspended.

“On Dec 21st 2018, Spark TV aired a program ‘Koona’, where we noticed total breach of the Minimum Broadcasting Standards,breach of it’s licence terms and conditions and the law. The Program,’Koona’, producer and presenter of this show have henceforth been suspended Immediately,” a tweet from UCC reads

Twitter Message By UCC

 

“Lets be mindful of this: Section 31(a) (ii) and (iv) of the Uganda Communications Act 2013 prohibits broadcasters from broadcasting any program or content that directly or indirectly promotes hatred or a culture of violence and likely to incite and/or glorify violent behaviours,” UCC continues.

When contacted, the show presenter Miles Rwamiti confirmed he had seen UCC’s communication but insisted “everything is under control .”

“But they cant suspend me, I don’t work for them,” Rwamiti added.

How Can Disorganized People Take Power, When Bobi Wine Is Not Around, There Is No People Power – Full Figure Punches Holes In Kyagulanyi’s Movement

Published

on

People Power movement female General Jennifer Nakabuubi alias Full Figure has blasted people power leadership and followers branding them noise makers and not actors.

Full Figure said that she thought that as a movement that is fighting for change, they were on the same page of ousting president Museveni with her colleagues but she has realized some members are using the movement for personal gains. “I have realised you have your own intentions, you see everyone as a bad person, everyone as a thief I don’t even know how people power members are selected and how they look like,” she said.

“I was surprised when we were going to visit Bajjo and we couldn’t even make 30 people. Even the people who were there, who call themselves people power follower, it was me who paid them. I had to pay journalists and feed them until I ran out of money,” she added.

She said, “there is no communication among people power members, you don’t call people, when Bobi Wine is not in the country no one does anything. Last time they arrested me, people attacked me instead. You are only good at slaying and taking selfies. When Bobi Wine is not in the country you cannot even see people like Eddie Mutwe.”

Like they always say that in Uganda anything is possible, today, a passport of a woman, who is allegedly 357 years old surfaced on Uganda social media platforms.

The passport, number A00078682, was issued on 20/05/2019 and belongs to Shamim Nantume, shows that she was born on 14/08/1662, which means she is 357 years old.

A section of Ugandans later commented:

Sammy Tumwesigye: This Ndangamuntu shld be inscribed in Guinness book if records

Muhindo Silver: It was a typing error by the immigration officials, I think it was supposed to be 1962

Leny Jaspher: In Uganda, anything is possible… I even have a feeling that our MPs can tomorrow decide to pull Heroes day from 9th to 7th June, 2019…NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN MY MOTHERLAND

Esther Nyambs: And after they deny the errors they made themselves saying mbu we can’t change years lol. Very shameful Nira and Internal affairs. Place of birth you fill out the hospital details yet they print it with your village name haha. What a country gifted with competent workers.

Jjeero Daniel Namuddala:  Now if this mistake can come through on a passport, fasten your seatbelts,,, let me hope its a joke, its a bad one. The whole thing is funny,the photo seems to a young person, so if they wanted to write 1962, the person would look younger than the age…Uganda..

Nana Tresa: Hmm what were they doing at the internal affairs thats an important doc hihihi ug zabu as usual obisanga wano..

Enos Mugabe: No one should laugh especially if your a Ugandan I call upon the minister of Internal affairs to wake up…
