Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has condemned Samson Kasumba’s act of broadcasting from the middle of a road gazetted to preserve grass. In a tweet via their account, the authority warned the journalist for undermining their beautification efforts.
“.@nbstv @KKariisa do you condone this kind of indiscipline by your staff? When you broadcast in a greenbelt, what kind of message are you relaying to the public—that trespass is okay? Samson, be cautioned that trespass is abuse of the law & undermines our beautification efforts!” KCCA tweeted.
However going by the replies, many people sided with Kasumba instead of KCCA. “@KCCAUG Twitter handler; please be a little calm. The belt is more brown than green. We got greater national problems” Ritah Nankya replied. Another one, Andrew Angulo said “@KCCAUG why don’t to start with the @PoliceUg who have messed up most of the greenbelts in and Kampala?”
