KAMPALA, UGANDA: NBS Television news anchor and political show host, Mildred Tuhaise Amooti has decried the cyber-bullying she has endured from National Unity Platform supporters and has expressed intent to sue the party leader Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine over the matter.
Tuhaise was singled out in the ongoing bully for spearheading to relay the falsified content from the station’s tally centre on the evening of Jan 14 election day.
However, Mildred has come out to say that she is tired of being a toy of mockery and that she has already involved her legal team to press a suit against Bobi Wine if he does not ‘tame’ his supporters.
“I have this morning notified my lawyers to pick up interest in the matter,,” Tuhaise says. “I have been bullied since these NUP people started a boycott campaign. I’m receiving threats and my reputation has been abused,” she adds.
Tuhaise says she should be exonerated since she was ‘doing her job’ on that tallying date. “I am only an anchor who does my work,” she says. “My job is to read what I’m being filled with in the newsroom. It is wrong for NUP supporters to insult me for doing my work,” she adds.
Th development comes at a time when the NUP fanbase have conspired to boycott NBS Television following a protest letter released by Bobi Wine on pinning the station for conniving with the Museveni regime to allure false results on during the presidential elections vote tallying.
