Viboyo arrested for calling Museveni, Kadaga “buttocks” in new song

Music veteran, Viboyo Oweyo – real names – Moses Nsubuga has been arrested by the police for allegedly releasing a song that attacks President Yoweri Museveni and the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga. 

According to Vincent Ssekatte, the spokesman of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Viboyo used obscene words to attack government leaders and is, therefore, being detained at Jinja Road Police Station on charges of offensive communication.

Quoting Section 25 of the Computer Misuse Act 2011 on offensive communication, Sekatte said that, “Any person who willfully and repeatedly uses electronic communication to disturb or attempts to disturb the peace, quiet or right of privacy of any person with no purpose of legitimate communication whether or not a conversation ensues commits a misdemeanour and is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding twenty-four currency points or imprisonment not exceeding one year or both.”

The Police also claim that Viboyo said he was tired of the leadership of a Rwandan national, accusing him of carrying murders of former police spokesman Andrew Felix Kaweesi and Andrew Kayiira.
