Uganda Police has arrested radio Simba Presenters and also, Bizonto Comedians. Following their comedy video that made rounds on different social media platforms talking about the different heads of government institutions coming from one tribe and side of the country ‘Western’, the comedians have been arrested today (Friday) morning on allegations of promoting tribalism.
Julius Sserwanja, aka Kidomoole, Mbabaali Maliseeri aka Uncle Luyuguumo, Ssaabakaaki Peter aka Omuzinyuuzi and Gold ki Matono aka Opeto are ‘the four singing fools and sexually dormant’ as they call themselves that have been arrested. These were picked from the Radio simba station a Bukoto based radio station and owned by a city tycoon Hajji Agga Ssekalala Junior.
The video that caused their arrest mentioned the president of Uganda H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as someone from the west, the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Ruhakana Rugunda, Minister of Education and also the First Lady Mrs. Janet Museveni, the prisons chief Byabashaija, the deputy Inspector General of Police Maj. Gen Sabiti Muzeyi who seems to be more powerful than the IGP Mr. John Martins Okoth Ochola who is a ceremonial office bearer.
Furthermore, the Metropolitan traffic police Chief Norman Musinga, Minister of Security Gen. Elly Tumwine, Minister of foreign affairs Sam Kahamba Kuteesa, Minister of Gender Frank Tumwebazze Kagigi, Minister of constitutional affairs Ephraim Kamuntu, and many others coming from the same region who occupy the big offices of the country.
In this video, the Bizonto comedians expressed concerns about power distribution and asked themselves why other regions are not favored as the western region. The comedians’ video comes as a supplement to a renowned Kadongo Kamu artiste Sir Mathias Walukanga’s Singa Nali President Song that talked about how power would be distributed among regions if he was the president.
The supporters of the comedians have launched an online campaign with the #FreeBizonto which is aimed at creating pressure for the unconditional release of the comedians who are currently detained at PSU Bukoto after being transferred from CID headquarters in Kibuli.
The management of the radio and the Uganda Journalism Association (UJA) president Hajji Kazibwe Bashir Mbazira also the aspiring Member of parliament for Kawempe South are working tirelessly to see these comedians released as soon as possible.
