According to the letter issued by Irene Kaggwa Sewankambo Ag, the Executive Director of Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), Bukedde TV2’s Full Blast program that has been hosted by Godfrey Sseguya has been suspended over the ‘demeaning and abusive language used by the guests; Pastor Martin Ssempa, Isma Lubega and Jennipher Namutebi Nakangubi (a.k.a Full Figure) on 30th September 2021.
According to UCC, they received a complaint alleging that the producer or presenter of the program did not provide professional control or guidance to the guests during the program, which resulted into a physical confrontation between some of the guests.
The Commission’s letter further reveals that the program lacked decorum as it had content that indeed contained inappropriate (abusive or demeaning) language and degenerated into a shouting contest whereby guests traded accusations against others.
”The host or presenter of the program, Mr. Godfrey Sseguya, failed to exercise the required professionalism and ability to control or guide the guests during the program, which resulted into a physical confrontation between Pastor Ssempa and Ms. Jennipher Namutebi Nakangubi,” UCC noted.
The Commission accuses the show host, ”He fell below the professional standards and ethics expected of journalists as required under the Press and Journalist Act Cap 105. The host, Producer and Bukedde TV 2 exhibited gross unprofessionalism when they failed to control and guide the guests to the extent of letting the program degenerate into abusive verbal exchanges and physical altercations.”
