President Yoweri Museveni has threatened to sue private radio stations over what he describes as promoting misinformation on land matters.
Museveni made these remarks while appearing on Voice of Tooro(VOT) a local radio station in Kabarole district last evening on a countrywide tour in radio campaign to push for the setting up of a land tribunal and change of the current land laws and also defuse what he called toxic misinformation by his political opponents.
He demanded for a list of radios so that he could sue them for hosting people he said have been peddling lies on land matters.
The head of state noted that he will not tolerate “indiscipline” by people who delay development projects by trying to loot from government through compensations, threatening to take stern action against some individuals who hike the value of land and delay government projects.
“Delaying government projects is an enemy to the youth unemployment. The one who is fighting a factory is fighting youth employment and tax base” he said and urged all people to fight the people who delay government projects.
However this campaign has scooped criticism from the opposition, religious leaders and civil society organization.
