The speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among has angrily lashed out at social media users especially National Unity Platform party supporters who celebrate each time a government official passes on.
Among who presided Tuesday plenary session said she has noted a tendency of social media users who now overtly show their joy when a government official dies.
The speaker cites the latest tragic incident in which a UPDF soldier Pte. Wilson Sabiiti shot and killed the labour Minister Charles Okello Engola. She says she saw with utter disgust as Ugandans sided with the killer soldier and expressed joy on the side of the lifeless minister.
The speaker says such acts are ‘unethical, barbaric and uncalled for.’
She warned that government may come up with tougher measures including taxing data charges as a restrain measure of regulating social media bullying and abuse.
