FJL: KCCA, Vipers Equal Strength as Bul win Explosive Derby

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) is considering blocking television and radio programs on which controversial presidential advisor Tamale Mirundi is usually hosted, sickness and Chimp Corps report.

This follows what an official described as people’s “consistent complaints of abuse” by Mirundi to the regulatory body.

UCC Executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi told this website on Monday that “media platforms should not be abused by anyone. We should use them constructively.”

Officials said Mirundi’s conduct has left many with damaged reputations; a situation they said had to be “dealt with decisively.”

Mirundi, a controversial man whose attacks on government officials, state house staff and opposition politicians has sparked fury and at the same time excitement among his admirers.

He was kicked out of State House for launching a scathing attack on staff, describing them as thugs. Mirundi, who describes himself as the President’s “barking dog”, was subsequently removed from the position of presidential press Secretary.

But this has not stopped him from slamming opponents.


However, Mutabazi said media houses which host Mirundi “risk consequences. They have to act. They have to stop allowing people to abuse their platforms.”

Asked what law UCC would rely on to crack the whip, Mutabazi responded: “We are calling upon concerned radio and television stations to show responsibility by addressing this concern. The laws are clear on holding people responsible for such content.”
