A Facebook blogger account in the names of Kakensamedia, on December 2, 2020 posted claiming that in a meeting held on the same day by the Chairman Electoral Commission, Justice Byabakama Simon, members of the Commission and Presidential candidate Hon Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu, the Chairman said that his DSTV had been disconnected for 2months, and thus not being able to know about police and army brutality towards the Presidential candidates. However, the URN fact checking team debunked the claim after the Electoral Commission through its Tweeter handle @UgandaEC regarded this as fake news and thus urged the public to ignore it.

Please ignore this idle talk. The EC Chairperson is also the Returning Officer for Presidential Elections and has kept himself interested and in the know of the progress and/or any emerging issues in the campaigns, through official communication and the media. 1/2
