This confirms Red Pepper’s fears that government is hell bent on crippling their business.

According to a search warrant issued by Nakawa Court, there is no provision for closure of the media houses.

Kaweesi said police were not only searching for embattled Gen David Sejusa alias Tinyefuza’s letter “but also its source.”

Appearing on NBS TV on Wednesday morning, Kaweesi was asked whether it was necessary to switch off radio stations Ddembe Fm and KFM and also the affected newspapers’ printers.

He retorted: “We did so as part of our investigations on the motive of why Red Pepper wrote the letter.”

Meanwhile, Red Pepper Marketing Director Arinaitwe Rugyendo said he would leave no stone unturned in fighting state harassment of the publication.

“This is an attempt by the state to take control of independent media houses,” Rugyendo told BBC Newsday today morning.
