Video of purpoted Ugandan minister threatening CNN journalist live on tv
The viral video showing purported Ugandan minister threatening CNN journalist Larry Madowo live on TV is misleading.
The video shared on Twitter by Kelvin Odanz shows a man claiming to be Uganda’s minister threatening the journalist during a live interview.
This is how Social Media contributes vastly to dissemination of Fake News.
The author doesn't mention anywhere that it's a parody/joke.
Most readers will take this hook line and sinker without any form of verification.
Uganda is great man, Nigeria is the real Circus Show SMH. https://t.co/rtj8OtCjLt

However, the video is fabricated and misleading and the character appearing to threaten the journalist is not a minister in Uganda.
