Uncut kalamata banned from showing on NBS
The famous NBS gossip show dubbed Uncut kalamata has been indefinitely suspended from broadcasting on NBS TV. This comes after a directive from UCC which regulates media activities in Uganda where all gossip shows were ordered to broadcast after 10:00pm. This was to protect children from viewing inappropriate content.
The announcement was made by the NBS staff personnel yesterday during NBS at 9 news.
It was made clear that the show currently airs on Sanyuka TV and Afro mobile app only starting at 10pm.
However, parents have been advised to control their parents on the content and programs they show to their children.
This Saga happened after NBS presenter Kays was involved in misreporting. He accused Singer OS Suna for being a witch. He and the entire production crew was arrested and sent to Kitalya prison where they spent a couple of days. They were later released on s non cash bail.
