Gaetano Kaggwa, a presenter on Capital FM and NBS TV, has threatened to drag NTV Uganda to court over a report on his arrest.

At the weekend, Uganda Police Force (UPF) and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) raided bars to apprehend revelers who flouted Covid19 prevention guidelines.

NTV Uganda showed Gaetano among those arrested in the KCCA-UPF joint operation.

But hours after the incident, Gaetano swore he would sue NTV Uganda for invading his privacy and tarnishing his name among right-thinking members of society who might label him a drunkard.

He argues that the NTV coverage could sink his business and make brands shun him.

“You cannot be a private business and you come in to invade another private business and therefore I will sue NTV for character and business assassination,” said Gaetano.

“I do not mind authorities coming in and saying what you are doing is wrong but what upset me were the cameras.”

The ‘Another Round’ show host also defended himself saying neither him nor anyone in the restaurant had flouted Covid19 prevention guidelines.

“I was at Zone 7 restaurant which happens to be my establishment. That’s where I go sometimes to eat dinner, to meet my clients, to talk business. These people entered Zone 7 at 20 minutes after nine o’clock in the evening but remember, I’m an essential worker and I wasn’t in a Bar,” explained Gaetano.

“I was having dinner despite having a loose bottle but everyone there was social distancing and mind you I was wearing a mask.”
