Former senior presidential press secretary, Joseph Tamale Mirundi has called off his weekly one on one political show programme on Kamwokya based NBS TV according to reliable reports.
This site has learnt that Mirundi’s exit takes effect on Tuesday, June 16. Tamale had built a legacy for featuring on prominent Radio and Television programmes where he regularly spins propaganda to favour his endeared figure, Yoweri Museveni.
Mirundi’s quitting has been confirmed by one of his son, Joesph Tamale Mirundi Jr. who on Monday, June 15 evening posted on his Facebook saying, “My father Tamale mirundi has left NBS. His usual program “one on one” will not be taking place with effect from tomorrow.. We shall be notifying you incase of any changes.. thank u”.
On most of the preceding programmes, Mirundi has been threatening to quit his programme on NBS as he always lashed out at his weekly host, UJA president, Kazibwe Bashir Mbaziira suspecting him to be projecting an agenda for the so called Mafia gang that has been haunting him since his controversial exit from State house where he had served for 13 years.
“When he told KBM that if he wasn’t a Muslim, and a journalist he would have been deadly I knew they were not in good shape to continue with what has been very important to Uganda,” reacts one of the Mirundi fans on Facebook. “But Mirundi should embrace the digital platforms. He can start a YouTube or Facebook stream,” he adds.
No official statement relating to the quitting has been issued by Mirundi at the time of filing this report.
