Former presidential candidate and National Unity Platform (NUP) President Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu popularly known as Bobi Wine has denied the allegations of asking his supporters to boycott NBS television.
This was after his supporters threw insults at NBS television, following the protest letter Bobi wine wrote to NBS TV, accusing the television of biased election reporting.
While addressing the media yesterday, Bobi Wine said that he has never asked his supporters to attack NBS workers or even boycott the television.
“We didn’t call for any protest against NBS. We didn’t call for any boycott and we didn’t call for any hatred,” Bobi Wine said.
Bobi Wine further said that his supporters who are attacking NBS workers should remember that some of these journalists were injured while covering him in the recently concluded presidential and parliamentary campaigns.
“I will not shy away from saying that NBS television is one of the television stations whose journalists stood with us in the tough time during our campaigns and some of them were seriously injured while executing their duty with truth, honour and transparency,” he said.
