KTN Business News anchor Joy Doreen Biira on Tuesday broke the silence after her arrest in Uganda which caused an uproar in the country.

Ms Biira took to social media to assure those concerned that she was well and safe.

“We are safe. Released on bond with charges of “abetting terrorism”. Thank you to each & every one of you for the incredible support. GRATITUDE,” the reporter tweeted.

Biira, who was in Uganda for her traditional wedding, landed in trouble for circulating photos and videos of the massacre in Kasese town which has seen over 62 people killed brutally.

According to police spokesperson Felix Kaweesi, she was arrested for going against orders that had been issued when the military fight broke out in the area.

“I think she misbehaved, she might have accessed a cordoned off area,” Kaweesi said.

The Kenyan-based Ugandan journalist was released later on Monday with the police stating that they would charge her with abetting terrorism.

Doreen, alongside three others including her fiance Newton Kungu, were released on police bond and will be required to present themselves for continuation of the case on December 8.

Chaos erupted in Uganda when royal guards protecting King Charles Wesley Mumbere of the Rwenzururu kingdom attacked patrolling security forces.
