Police still stuck with journalist Kyambadde’s file despite him reporting everyday


By Ronald Kabuye
Police at old Kampala is still stuck with the file number Gef.31/2018 of Metro FM’s  talk show host and news anchor Samuel Kyambadde following his short detention  on accounts of inciting violence on Friday last week.
According to our reliable sources the investigating officers have written to Uganda Communications Commission UCC to give them the recordings of Kyambadde’s Friday talk show were he alleged incited violence in order to boost their evidence which seems to be so weak.
We were also reliably informed that Kyambadde is obliged to report to police every day including weekends.
Our sources also quoted the resident city commissioner for Kampala Deborah Mbabazi saying that Kyambadde must be charged for inciting the public without fail.
Kyambadde confirmed to this website that he reports to police every day which he sees as infringement of his rights.
He adds that the motive behind is to silence, witch-hunt and impact fear amongst journslists who are critical of the political events.
It should be noted that on the fateful day Kyambadde sneaked out of his work station before four plain clothed security operatives could arrest him. He however later received a phone call from the DPC old kampala Mr Nsaba summoning him to which he heed to before he was detained until about 10pm when he was bonded.

Kyambadde’s point of discussion during the show was the violence, brutality and the arrests in the Arua municipality that saw police and the army arrest and kill one, critically beat up several MPs, journalists and members of the public.

This is not the first time police has arrested journalists after their talk shows.
