Red Pepper publications closed- Source

Namanve based Red Pepper Publications has been ordered closed after an earlier siege by security personnel this afternoon.

A source inside Red Pepper tells Nile Post that after rummaging the offices, the media house has been ordered to shut.

“We have been ordered to close, all workers also ordered to stop working,” the source intimates.

 

The source also adds that all computers have been taken, while workers have been asked to surrender their phones and electronic gadgets.

Immediately after surrendering items, staff at red pepper have been ordered to vacate the premises with immediate effect.

Red Pepper publication on November 20 published an article with headline; “M7 plotting to overthrow Kagame – Rwanda” which was reproduced from a Rwandan online publication “Rushyashya” of an alleged plan by the Ugandan Government to overthrow the Rwanda Government.

However, the government in a statement by Ministry of Affairs Permanent Secretary, Patrick Mugoya, has rubbished the claims, citing that the two countries are currently enjoying strong and cordial relations.
