KTN anchor’s father arrested by Ugandan police

KTN business news anchor Joy Doreen Biira’s father has been arrested by Ugandan police and is being held for interrogation.

Ms Biira’s father was arrested on Tuesday afternoon. Family sources told Nairobi News that he was told to go and record a statement with the police.

The KTN anchor took to social media to share the latest twist and expressed hope that he will be treated better than she was.

Ms Biira was seized by police last month and locked up for allegedly circulating photos and videos of a military fight that broke out in Uganda’s Kasese town.

She was arrested alongside her fiance where she had travelled for her traditional wedding ceremony. She was released after being charged with abetting terrorism through the content she posted on social media.

In her TV interview on the arrest, she stated that the dark moments under police custody were defined by threats, physical harassment and abusive remarks.

“That was the first time I was being roughed up and taken to a police station.” she said.
