4 arrested in Gulu for abusing Museveni


A radio talk show in Uganda

Four people in Gulu including a radio journalist are in trouble for reportedly abusing the president during a talkshow.

They are Bonie Payira, the programs manager JAL fresh FM, Thomas Okot, a civil society activist, Samuel Oyet Agwani, the Laroo Division Youth representative and Silver Ocaka.

The four were picked up on Tuesday night by the Gulu RDC Andrew Awany and DPC Martin Okoyo while appearing on a political talk show code named the Straight line on JAL fresh FM.

They were debating street politics, which involves activism as opposed to office politics that involves diplomacy.

Wilson Kwanya, the Aswa Region Police Commander says that he received information from the Gulu DPC Martin Okoyo that the radio panellists were abusing the president.

Kwanya says their preliminary findings confirm that the panellists actually abused the president.

Back in 2008, talkshows on CBS, a Buganda radio, led to the arrest of three Buganda officials for abusing Museveni.
