Government has suspended three programmes aired on ABS TV owned by renowned city Pastor Augastine Yiga.
According to the Uganda Communications Commission the programmes which include Kalondoozi, Nabawalanyi and Oluwombo Lw’abafumbo have been suspended over breach of broadcasting guidelines.
Kalondoozi, one of the flagship programmes on the TV station is a mimic of Cheaters, a reality TV series produced in the United States.
The ABS TV version of the show involves lovers aided by the TV production crew to secretly spy on their partners through video surveillance.
The intention is to uncover their hidden lifestyles. However, most of the stories aired on the TV have uncovered infidelity and episodes that end in fist fights.
There are also allegations that the show was acted and not reality as portrayed by the station.
The other shows are covered with adult content which according to the commission is not suitable for broadcast.
The commission said in a statement issued yesterday that the programmes are in breach of the minimum broadcasting standards set out in Section 31 of the Uganda Communications Act 2013.
