Special Forces Command (SFC) with stern instructions from the commander in-chief (CIC), Rtd.Gen.(but not tired)President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has banned NBS Television’s senior journalist Joseph Sabiti from covering events that feature President Museveni.
Earlier this week when the president was launching the steering committee for national dialogue at State House Entebbe, Sabiti went to cover the event but on reaching State House, SFC soldiers who guard the president blocked him from entering.
They openly told the journalist that he was not allowed in the room where the president would launch the national dialogue process.
This comes shortly after a December 10th, 2018 incident in which Sabiti found himself caught up in a hot exchange with the president.
Sabiti who described himself as a “journalist and patriot” rose to ask a question when the president was addressing journalists after launching the Anti-Corruption unit at Kololo independence grounds.
The President shot down the journalist saying “NBS is a bad Television” “Bad, bad, bad, bad, ba—aad! I know whom it is loyal to.”
The president later cautioned NBS to change before adding that the game of misrepresenting Ugandans will not work.
“You don’t have that right to misrepresent Ugandans. You only have the right to report the truth. Okay? Better watch out,” he added.
