“Kayihura should explain the arbitrary closure of media houses and will also have to answer for contempt of court after his men (police) defied court orders to vacate the media houses’ premises,’’ noted Ssebaggala.


He demanded Mutabazi to explain as to why radio stations; Ddembe FM and KFM were switched off air as police searched for the widely publicized letter authored by Gen David Sejusa.


Ssebagala said the legal paper work necessary for the prosecution of Kayihura and Mutabazi was complete.


Kayihura maintains the search for Sejusa’s letter necessitated the halting of operations at the media houses.


The government reopened Daily Monitor Publications Ltd, its sister stations KFM and Dembe FM and the Red Pepper to resume business but under stringent conditions and an apology for a story that led to their closure.
