According to Lutaaya, he was placed under gunpoint and there isn’t much he could have done about it.
It should be recalled that the internet was cut off countrywide during the elections last year. Lutaaya however somehow managed to tweet part of the elections as they were coming in.
Despite the absence of the internet, he was able to somehow access it and some Ugandans also saw these results on his paage.
These had NUP leader Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu in the lead but didn’t comprise the entire general total election results.
However, Ugandans who support Bobi Wine and the opposition contend that this was just an overview of the entire results. It meant that Bobi Wine would have won had the elections not been tampered with.
For long, NBS journalists have been faulted for having had a hand in spreading wrong election results. Lutaaya who recently quit NBS for personal ventures this time round couldn’t handle the insults anymore.
His opinion on everything has always been reduced to that saga and he decided to confess once and for all. Lutaaya questioned his critics about how they sensibly think that a mature man like him could delete his tweets willingly.
He added that there are a lot of people who do things under gunpoint. He feared for his life, thus deleting these results. Lutaaya then warned all his critics to wait for their fate if they are ever thrown into such a scenario.
“Naye mwana namwe bi comment byamwe bintama. Kati mwe mulowooza omusajja Omukulu nyinza okubeera awo nensangula tweet zange kyeyagalire? Bangi munange abakola ebintu ku mudumo. Kale nze omunafu natya, naye katulinde naawe lwebalikunyiga tunaalaba oba naawe ezizo tolizisangula.”
