Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine of the National Unity Platform has been thrown out of a radio station by security agencies in Hoima District at the start of his fully paid talk show.
“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,” Robert Kyagulanyi said.
Kyagulanyi added; “We asked why they were doing this, and their answer was “orders from above”.
Meanwhile, Kyagulanyi says they have been blocked from addressing Ugandans on thirteen radio stations across the country.
Following the incident, Kyagulanyi has challenged the Electoral Commission chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama on digital campaigns if he is not allowed access to radio stations.
“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,” Kyagulanyi said.
Robert Kyagulanyi is currently campaigning in Bunyoro sub-region as he continues with his nationwide vote hunt for the country’s top office and his today scheduled to campaign in Buliisa, Kiryandongo and Masindi Districts.
