Motor mouthed Inspirational, motivitioal speaker amnd economic right activist, Frank Gashumba has opened war on television giants NBS Television accusing the station of defaming him in a letter halting his show ‘The Eagle’ programme. He has instructed his lawyers to sue the Kamwokya based station. Below is his full statement;
NBS TV yes you have the visual and Frank Gashumba has a brand!!
This letter which has been circulating on the social media shows you the level of institutions and organizations we have in this country. When I tell you that this country is dead, I don’t mean political and government institutions alone!! Every fiber in this country is dead that’s why we urgently need God’s intervention!! How can a Chief Marketing Officer write such a defamatory letter!! In protocol, such a letter can’t be written by a marketing officer!! It’s the HR department that handles such matters.
I resigned on the 17th March and I told them pointblank that there is no way UCC determines and decides how NBS runs its shows and programming. So when someone says that I changed my mind, that person needs help. Some of us have values and principles that have kept us alive!! Who is Simon Muyanga to moderate a show that I hatched???? No way! Eagles don’t fly with other birds.
Where has it been written in any Bible or Quran that every show in Uganda must be moderated!!!
Now back to my point, when did a TV Station become a Police Station! How can a TV station rely on falsehoods, when did a TV station become a compliant, an investigator, a prosecutor, judge and a Supreme Court. Even murder suspects have a right to be heard! Gashumba has his physical place of work. A few meters from my office, there is a police station. I don’t drive a tinted car! So how do you complain when you can choose to come to my office or lodge a complaint at Police! How can a mature person of sound choose to report to a TV station!! To me they don’t exist!!
I have instructed my lawyers to take on NBS!! U know sometimes when we keep quiet they think we are all fools! In my entire life, I don’t fight small wars, I go in for serious battles!! The rest I am living it to my lawyers.
