The Ministry of Health has requested Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to ban ‘Tumbiza sound’ hit song on grounds that it contains information that misleads the public about Covid-19.
According to the Ministry’s Director for General Health Services Dr Henry G Mwebesa, the song has caused misinformation among different audiences and subsequently creating complacency among the public.
“It has been noted with concern that there’s a song being broadcasted on electronic and social media with messages contradicting the Ministry of Health standard operating procedures on covid-19 prevention titled ‘Tumbiza sound’ by Eric Opoka aka EeZzy. The message in this song has in turn caused misinformation among different audiences and subsequently creating complacency among the public,”Dr Mwebesa said in a letter dated 4 December.
