Yesterday, NUP booked and paid for its Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu to appear on Spice FM radio station in Hoima District. As soon as we got to the station this morning and started introducing ourselves, the police and military cordoned off the building and forcefully ejected us out of the radio station.
We asked why they were doing this, and their answer was “orders from above”. So far, we have been blocked from addressing Ugandans on thirteen radio stations across the country.
Mr. Byabakama and the Electoral Commission must tell us what the meaning of a digital campaign is, when we are not allowed on radio stations. Above all, Mr. Tibuhaburwa and his friends are right to be scared.
Ugandans who wondered why we have been calling him the worst coward in history can now see for themselves what we have been saying.
To you people of Hoima and Bunyoro generally, the time is now to regain our freedom. And I thank you for the great reception you are giving us everywhere in the midst of great intimidation.
