Sejusa was expected to explain the circumstances under which he fled the country, whether he would return soon and the root cause of a conflict with senior army officers including Special Forces Commander Brig. Kainerugaba Muhoozi


Mwanguhya refused to comment when contacted by this website.


The development marks a deterioration of relations between Nation Media Group which manages the radio station and government as the media house struggles to maintain its independent editorial policy.


Kfm was recently switched off air alongside Monitor, Ddembe Fm and Red Pepper in the wake of a leaked letter in which Sejusa called for an investigation into claims that army officers opposed to the idea of Brig Muhoozi succeeding his father, President Yoweri Museveni, were targeted for assassination.


The media houses were reopened after 11 days of siege under very stringent conditions from government.


Sejusa was expected to be interviewed for an hour – between 7pm to 8pm.


The interview was cancelled at the last minute.


“Everything was set including the telephone link. Sejusa said he was fully prepared for the show. All our people were waiting for was the time to start the interview.

But management communicated to KFM directing that the show be put on hold until further notice,” a source at the Namuwongo-based station said.
