A renowned and celebrated Kenyan journalist, Jeff Koinange, was forced to end his interview prematurely on Tuesday 12th January after military officers raided his giest’s home.
This was during a virtual interview with the Ugandan Presidential candidate Rober Kyagulanyi who is famously known as Bobi Wine.
The military officers raided his home in Kampala just six minutes into the interview that was being broadcasted on Hot 96 FM.
The two were talking about the upcoming elections in Uganda that are slated to take place on January 14th 21.
I am sorry because as we speak I am being raided by the military. I have to end the interview because I can see soldiers beating my security guards and I have to go down and give it attention,”Bobi Wine said before cutting the transmission.
Bobi Wine has faced a lot of brutality in his quest to become the next president of Uganda through a popular vote on National Unity Party.
In the interview he stated that more than 500 members of his campaign had been detained.
He told Jeff that he has survived three assassination attempts and he has been campaigning in a bullet proof vest and a balistic helmet.
He expressed that Ugandans are yearning for change and hopes to win the Thursday elections.
More than 17.6 million Ugandan voters are expected to cast their votes.
