IBANDA RDC WARNS POLITICIANS AGAINST MISUSE OF MEDIA
BY ELLY KARENZI
The Ibanda district resident commissioner has sounded a strong warning to the media and political activists to stop making unnecessary utterances when hosted at different media houses, a thing which he said can cause unrests in the society.
Mr. Eliasto Akatuheebwa added that some political talk shows which are aired on different Televisions and radios in western Uganda are always geared at creating awareness amongst the people and also address political issues but they have instead created divisionism and confusion among the members of the public.
“……mostly councilors, they are supposed to address their issues during the council meetings but not through political talk shows on radio and Tv’s.” Eliasto fumed.
He said this on Tuesday while addressing journalists in his office at Kitwe hill in Ibanda Municipal council.
He advised some leaders not to go beyond their boundaries because at times their talk under mines the district which even impedes investors from investing in the district. He ended by threatening that if the current continues, he will be forced the drag the culprits to the disciplinary and subsequently be taken to court for the law to take its course.
