Current and trusted reports indicate that television gossip shows will no longer be airing in the usual
time after Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) ordered them to start airing between 10pm and 5am.

According to information tweeted by Urban Television, a directive has been sent to all media houses
with a warning that other regulatory sanctions shall be instituted against any television station that fails to adhere to the new regulations.

UCC has ordered all gossip shows on Tv to be airing between 10pm and 5am. A directive which has been sent to TVs notes that any Tv that fails to adhere to the directive, “the Commission shall proceed to institute other regulatory sanctions.”

The reason for change in time they should air is because they contain adult content, sexual innuendos  profanity, with potential to disturb and harm some members of the public especially the children.

It further stated that tv presenters of different programs often appear on air indecently dressed in
skimpy outfits and the language used by presenters and guests during the shows is often abusive,
demeaning, derogatory & contain unsubstantiated claims against different people.
Record has it that earlier this month UCC summoned gossip show presenters of 11 television stations in Kampala over allegations of offensive language.

The shows complained about included Spark TV’s Live Wire, NBS TV’s Uncut Sabula – Uncut
Kalakata, Kingdom TV’s Kapyaki, Dream TV’s Tik-Tak Sesetula, BTM TV’s Access, BBS TV’s Round About and Baba TV’s Poko Poko. 4/7.

This must have compelled UCC to issue this directive for them to start airing between 10pm and 5am
