NBS television has issued a statement denying accusations labelled against the Naguru based station by National Unity Platform leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
Bobi Wine in his protest letter accused NBS of “assisting the dictatorship in committing the most vile crime against the people of Uganda”.
He said NBS claimed to have established its own Tally Center (which other media houses were not allowed to do), and by 11:00pm, they were saying that Museveni had 63% from several districts.
“Most citizens wondered where these results were coming from. To complete their well calibrated plan, they lined up some so-called analysts to justify the results.”
He added: “It was clear the intention was to create the impression that Museveni was leading so as to dampen the spirits of the citizens who h ad roundly rejected the dictatorship.”
In a public notice issued Monday, Derek Mugumisa, Next Media Services PRO, said they have always maintained objectivity and fair and balanced coverage.
“We have consistently provided equal opportunity to all political players irrespective of their inclinations, ” he noted.
Mugumisa dismissed Kyagulanyi’s allegations as baseless and unfounded.
