Sheilah Gashumba and Marcus Ali Lwanga are the happiest Ugandans on Twitter after their hashtag #StopmediabullyinginUganda paid off, Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has suspended the Scoop on Scoop program to the time when they can put a few things right.

It all started with Sheilah Gashumba and boyfriend Marcus Ali Lwanga demanding for an apology from the Scoop on Scoop presenter Christine Karungi aka Tina Fierce for the abusive remarks she made in the month of May 2020.

The 48 hour deadline elapsed before the apology had come through. Sheila took it a notch higher to include her lawyers that demanded Shs400M from her and an apology. Tina was given 14 days to respond.

Failure to apologize would mean that the two end up in court.

Meanwhile, following the several complaints, the communications regulator had already written to Vision Group, who also own Urban TV over the matter demanding for an explanation plus Tina's qualifications.

However, Vision Group's response did not comply with the Commission's directives.

The letter reads in part;

"Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has suspended a programme airing on Urban TV after several viewers complained about its content that was deemed offensive and scandalous."

The programme is to remain suspended until Urban TV has satisfactorily demonstrated to the Commission that Scoop on Scoop “has sufficient controls to avoid the risk of breaching the Minimum Broadcasting Standards and the rights of other members of the public.”

The UCC Executive Director warned that Urban TV risks "other appropriate regulatory sanctions" if the station doesn’t adhere to the aforesaid directives. Sanctions available to the Commission in the event of failure to comply include suspension of the station’s broadcasting license.
