FULL LIST: UCC Suspends 23 Radio Stations For Promoting Witchcraft

Following the recent increased electronic fraud in the country, Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) has revoked licences of 23 radio stations accused of promoting and advertising witchcraft on media.

According to the UCC spokesperson, Pamela Ankunda these radios have been used by witchdoctors to defraud people by claiming that when people send them money, their problems can be sorted. She says UCC has been monitoring these radios for a while and that they have evidence.
