A journalist working with the New Vision Newspaper in Fort-Portal has been banned from covering the Tooro Kingdom activities.
Hope Mafaranga, was on Saturday humiliated when she was ordered out of the venue of the 17th anniversary of the Coronation of King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru.
Mafaranga was stopped at the gate by the Kingdom officials and the presence of the police and the royal guards could not save her.
Chris Kaijabwango, the Kingdom’s security minister ordered Mafaranga to either immediately leave the venue or face arrest.
Kaijabwango and Francis Mugenyi the private secretary to the king accused Mafaranga for writing trash and dust against Tooro Kingdom.
They argued that the New Vision journalist has never reported anything good about the
Kingdom and is biased.
The journalist’s troubles stem from the stories that she has filed showing friction between the kingdoms official and the queen mother, and the alleged claim that the Libyan leader’s relationship with the kingdom was likely to cause instability in the kingdom.
