Nalufenya Police post is holding the programs director of Baba FM Twahir Ddamulira and five others over unrevealed charges.
Unverified Reports indicate that Twahir is detained for hosting the patron of the people power movement who double as Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu. A week back, the radio station hosted him to address his supporters ahead of the 2021 general elections.
Ddamulira was picked yesterday at Dunlop and bundled on a Police Force pickup along with five other colleagues. The other five detainees include two mechanics who had come to pick their money, a female known as Suzan, Mukose Rajab alias Daddy Alonso and the driver.
According to Damulira police have not revealed nor preferred any charges against them.
According to Baba FM Media team, the Kira region Police spokesperson Hajji Abbey Moiti could not explain why the group is in custody and referred them to the regional police commander.
The team noted that the regional police commander (RPC) hinted on arresting more BABA FM presenters. The presenters who face arrest include; Kalyowa Atanansi, Hussein Ibanda aka Swengere, Kasolo Alton and Namulondo Zakia aka Mama Kalibbala.
According to Swengere, they are accused of hosting Bobi Wine and supporting the People Power movement. He assumes that Mama Kalibbala is wanted because Bobi Wine mentioned her name during the show.
He also assumes that Kalyowa Atanansi is wanted for hosting Bobi Wine, Hassan Muwanga for sitting in the studio when Bobi Wine is being hosted, Kasolo Alton for standing for the Jinja City mayor on support of Bobi Wine and People Power, Swengere for driving Bobi Wine after the show and Ayub Khan for supporting Bobi Wine.
