Kyaddondi East constituency MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known as Bobi Wine will not be hosted by any Ugandan radio and TV stations following his conduct in parliament on Wednesday.
He was among the legislators who put up a physical fight when fellow lawmakers accepted to remove the cap on presidential age limit.
Bobi Wine aka the ‘Ghetto President’ claimed he received phone calls from media houses informing him that they were ordered not to host him.
The award winning artist turned politician shared on social media how his interview on Capital FM was cancelled at the last minute. Part of his post read:
This morning I was supposed to be hosted by Capital FM for Capital Gang. I was later informed that the radio was directed by UCC and received phone-calls from security operatives not to host me. I was called by other radio and TV stations and they confirmed that they received the same order- with threats that if I am hosted, they risk being closed.
If you were looking for signs of a collapsing regime, look no further. This is cowardly and unacceptable. The regime thinks they can stop us from reaching our people. They are doing things not different from what they claimed to fight against. Instead of focusing on trying to clean up the mess they have created, they are trying to cover it up. We have exposed them, they can’t stomach it any longer.
Bobi Wine has been touted as been likened to the country’s opposition chief Kizza Besigye.
