POLICE | TRIBALISM | MEDIA
Armed security men Friday morning raided Bukoto based Radio Simba and arrested four staff who reportedly recorded a video accusing government of tribalism.
Senior security sources revealed that the four included Julius Sserwanja alias Kidomoole, Maliseeri Mbabaali, Uncle Luyuguumo, Peter Ssabakaaki, Gold Ki Matono Opeto.
Radio Simba in a statement shared online confirmed the arrest of the four.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango confirmed the arrest but noted that the Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga would issue a statement. By press time the statement was not yet out.
According to the video clips seen by the New Vision, the comedians who call themselves ‘Bizoonto' appear dressed in priestly garbs as they recite their jibes, most of which have political tinges.
In the clip that landed them in problems, the comedians claimed they were praying for government leaders. But the leaders that they claimed to pray for were all from western Uganda, an issue that attracted Police's attention.
