I Had Already Openly Declared My Support For Joyce Bagala – Daniel Lutaaya To Social Media Trolls

NBS Journalist, Daniel Lutaaya has lashed back at social media trolls who are calling him subjective in Joyce Bagala’s issues. Tweeps have been dragging Lutaaya for openly siding with Bagala and yet he is a Journalist.

One of the ethics in Journalism is being objective because that’s the only way one can publish impartial stories. However it seems as though, Lutaaya was not in any way practicing this in the case of Bagala.

Lutaaya, meanwhile defended himself saying he had already declared his support for Bagala. He says he is very much aware of all the ethics that govern Journalism and he is also well aware of his rights.

“But I declared from the start nti nze ku nsonga za @joycebagala1 I’m not a journalist. Nze Mpagila Joyce,(in the issues of Joyce Bagala, I’m not a Journalist. I am a supporter of Joyce), and I am well within my rights.

Have you seen NBS sending me to cover her stories?

There is such a thing as conflict of interest and it is a noble thing to declare it.”

Bagala being a former work colleague probably is one of the reasons Daniel Lutaaya has for supporting her. He has openly shared how he feels about her leadership from the onset. For many, perhaps, it shouldn’t be so but on his part he insists that he is exercising his rights. However some Tweeps have sided with him saying he is also human and like others he is allowed to have a choice and declare it.

“Wama you have a right to support her…First she was a work colleague i don’t see a problem with that. Let me ask, if you are a journalist your not allowed to have personal interest?” A one Isaac Otim said.

“Many think journalists have no right to support any side. Journalism and judiciary are twins in Uganda. Everyone will praise them when this speak good about them,” a one Galandi Emma said.
