Yesterday evening, the National Unity Platform Principle Hon Robert Kyagulanyi a.k.a Bad Bobi Wine took to social media and viciously revealed how NBS Television went in bed with the electoral commission as it assisted the dictatorship in committing the most vile crime against the people of Uganda.
In a letter dated 27th January and directly addressed to the Next Media CEO Mr Kin Kalisa, Bobi Wine expressed his disappointment at the way the Naguru based station established it own tally center contrary to gov’t directive that no one was allowed to release results except the electoral commission.
In the same block buster letter Bobi Wine goes on to allege how NBS TV was simply tasked with creating the impression that Museveni had taken an early lead, a picture that never reflected the real case scenario on ground.
Well, we don’t want to insinuate alot. Just take a look at Bobi’s allegations below;
At the height of the most fraudulent election in our nation’s history, after the regime locked out credible election observers and cut off the internet; after the regime came out and said that NO ONE except the Electoral Commission had the authority to release election results, NBS was at hand to assist the dictatorship in committing the most vile crime against the people of Uganda.
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. It was clear the intention was to create the impression that Museveni was leading so as to dampen the spirits of the citizens who had roundly rejected the dictatorship. Shame upon whoever was part of the plot to subvert the will of the people. Ugandans are certainly watching.
This week, I wrote a protest letter to them to express my disappointment, which very many Ugandans have expressed.
