KAMPALA– ICT and National Guidance minister Frank Tuwebaze has condemned what he has termed as an act of violence by Lubaga South Member of Parliament Kato Lubwama who in a heated live broadcast elected to slap events promoter.

Kato Lubwama on Friday evening at Spark TV unleashed a flurry of slaps onto his rival after the duo became embroiled in an argument on television.

Kato Lubwama slapped Andrew Bajjo of Bajjo events on live TV, for claiming the MP stays quiet in parliament because he can’t speak English.

Minister Tumwebaze has since condemned the ‘ugly’ action by the fellow MP saying it offends the country’s minimum broadcasting standards that broadcasting entities must adhere to.

“If this is true, I condemn the violence and more so on air. It offends minimum broadcasting standards that broadcasting entities must adhere to,” the minister added calling for sanctions against the duo.

Tumwebaze has also directed the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) – the communications sector regulator and the National Broadcaster Association (NAB) – the umbrella body of broadcasters in Uganda to sensitize the industry against violence.

“I call upon Uganda communications [UCC] and Uganda National Broadcaster Association to sanitize our broadcasting space;” he said adding that “violence is not fit content for broadcasting.”

Kato Lubwama was recently appointed shadow minister for culture and performing arts.
