Rogers Asiimwe commonly known as Bronex conducts morning show at 94.7 freedom radio Kabale which he allegedly uses to tell the public that coronavirus is made by people adding that President museveniâ€™s directives will not end it because its uncurable.
In the audio which was seen and heard circulating on different social Medias, the controversial radio presenter said that corona virus canâ€™t be treated unless they use computer which were used to form it adding it is the end of the world.
Kabale district Surveillance Corona Virus task force team led by Ollen Aryeija said that Rogers should be questioned over the statements that are misleading the public.
Aryeija added that Rogers has caused havoc and panic to public because of confusing them that the disease is uncurable which has crippled prevention and implementation of president’s directives on deadly Corona Virus.
The Kabale Resident District Commissioner, Darius Nandinda when contacted about the matter said that this radio should expel this presenter or face closure.

When our reporter contacted freedom radio station manager Bob Rumanzi on the matter , he declined to comment where as station director Justus Orishaba Bagamunda failed to pick repeated calls.
It was also futile for our reporter to get a comment from Asimwe Rogers because his known phone numbers were switched off.
