The post reads: “Renowned NBS Television anchor, Mildred Tuhaise has decried the online bullying she has endured from supporters of the National Unity Platform party presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine.”
Wine withdrew a supreme court case challenging the election results on 22 February, reportedly claiming that the “courts are not independent”.
The Facebook post goes on: “Tuhaise was singled out by NUP fans for spearheading the relay of falsified content from an anonymous tally centre on the polling date. She says she is tired of being a toy of mockery and that she has already involved her legal team to press a suit against Bobi Wine if he does not ‘tame’ his supporters.”
There is no evidence the news anchor plans to sue the pop star politician.
