Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is furious over social media circulations on Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi‘s health.
In the past seven days there have been scores of YouTube videos and social media posts alleging poisoning of the top African King which Buganda Kingdom Premier Owek Charles Peter Mayiga refuted.
The bloggers earlier demanded that King makes public appearance to downplay these fake news which for now hasn’t been possible.
Last night when posts made new twists claiming the king is dead prompting worldwide concerns with many Ugandans in Australia, United States and Europe starting to morn, President was forced to make statement in anger.
Museveni said the Kingdom has officials from whom credible news about the king can be sourced and any one else not authorised to speak must be arrested. “I have ordered security and intelligence officials to hunt down these bloggers and they must be punished.” Museveni said.
Political analysts speaking to HICGI News Agency say that President Museveni & Premier Mayinga’s statements are not enough to calm the fears of people until when the king makes public appearance.
