NTV Uganda has issued an apology for indecency by one of its audience members that unfortunately aired live during the NTV Mix Show on June 25.
As common policy by most TV stations, a Zoom feed for fans is often relayed during the live mix shows but the fateful night saw a yet-to-be identified fan display his private parts.
There was strong bemusement and criticism from observers about the profane incident including sub-tweets from rival stations on how inappropriate it was.
