NUP Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine, has finally come out to speak about Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) writing to Google and Facebook seeking for blockage of all opposition Online Platforms.
Speaking in an interview with journalists, Bobi Wine said that the Government is now scared because of the power of people on social media is being felt.
He added that President Museveni has not stopped at taxing social media but he is also asking Google to block channels that support change because he is intimidated by the power of people especially the youths in the country.
“I hope all bloggers and other Ugandans who use social media to promote change are encouraged, knowing that their work has meaningful impact,” Bobi said.
It should be noted that yesterday, the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) wrote to Google requesting for the blockage of all Ugandan YouTube channels that spread hate speech during ever since the Presidential Campaigns started and among these was Bobi Wine’s Ghetto TV.
Among the channels is JB Muwonge 2, Bobi Wine 2021, Map Media, Ekyoto, Olujjuliro, Lumbuye, KK TV, Trending Channel Ug, Uganda Yaffe, Uganda Empya, Ghetto TV, Uganda News Update, Busesa Media Update, TMO Online among others.
