MEMBERS of Parliament have summoned information state minister Basoga Nsadhu to discuss issues concerning the recent ban of the open-air talk shows popularly known as bimeeza
â€œI think Basoga Nsadhu did not handle the issue of bimeeza well enough. If you think people are distorting the way things should be, then you get involved in it rather than banning it,â€ presidential and foreign affairs committee chairman James Nsaba Buturo yesterday said.
â€œI donâ€™t think that banning bimeeza in this modern world is the right thing to do. In any case, this should be a confirmation of the liberalisation that is taking root in our society,â€ Buturo said.
Basoga, through the media council, banned open-air talk-shows saying they are only legal in gazetted studios and not in bars.
Over 6,000 people including two members of Parliament signed a petition asking the council to revoke the decision that banned the talk-shows.
Buturo said the meeting with Basoga will take place next Tuesday.
