Adjumani RDC cancels Besigye, Amuriat radio talkshow


Adjumani Resident District Commissioner (RDC) has cancelled a planned radio programme featuring opposition figure Kizza Besigye and FDC President Patrick Amuriat.

A letter dated July 5, 2019 directs the Manager Aulogo media services to halt the programme over security concerns.      

RDC Taban Data said he received intelligence saying some people were organising to disrupt the programme which meant Amuriat wasn’t safe.

In a subsequent letter to Forum for Democratic Change, Iranya Ronald, the manager Aulogo radio explained why the Friday show couldn’t proceed.

He said Aulogo 96.5FM was ready to refund the Shs1.6m FDC had paid for the show.

Besigye and Amuriat were set to be hosted on the West Nile based Radio station from 8pm-10pm.

Both Besigye, Amuriat and other People’s Government officials have been either thrown out of the Radio stations or blocked from appearing on dozens others, according to his aide Ronald Muhinda.
