The manager of Kioga Veritas Radio station, the Rev. Fr. Athanathius Mubiru, has called off a strike he staged in protest against the closure of the radio.
Mubiru appeared clean-shaven at a recent Teso religious leaders’ consultative meeting at the Church of Uganda health centre, Soroti. He also donned clean clothes as opposed to his earlier vow not to shave, bathe or wash his clothes.
“I called off the strike after I was advised to do so. I cannot tell you who advised me,” he said yesterday.
The Police in June closed the radio over broadcasting messages that the Government had glorified the activities of the Lord’s Resistance Army rebels.
The station is one of the social and economic development projects run by the Soroti Diocese, whose activities stalled after the station was closed.
The First Deputy Premier, Lt. Gen. Moses Ali, recently said the station was closed on the orders of the Government.
He advised those aggrieved over the closure to contact Kampala “where the high voltage of political power is based.” Ends
