The management of NTV Uganda has apologized for yesterday's incident that saw one of the fans expose themselves indecently live on television.
NTV Show Mix presenters Dagy Nyce and Etania Mutoni
As the show hosts Douglas Suubi aka Dagy Nyce and Etania Mutoni did their thing, a Zoom screenshot on TV of the fans tuned in was shared, but unfortunately, one of them was seen playing with his privates as opposed to showing his face.
Dagy Nyce was left in shock after what he saw, but it was too late as the individual who is now being hunted down had enjoyed some seconds live on TV.
"We regret this very unfortunate incident and have reported the matter to UCC for assistance in identifying and prosecuting the individual concerned."
"In addition, we have suspended the director and producer of the show and an inquiry into the matter is underway. All our studio technical staff, producers and presenters have also been reminded to always be mindful of such mischievous audience members."
The fans who have been responding to the incident have accepted the apology though they seem to disagree with the suspension of the staff who were on duty at the time of the Saturday Night Show.
They go on to say that the male fan was taken through a 'pulocess' by Etania, Dagy Nyce' female co-host and that the staff did not know when exactly the fan with ill intentions could strike.
They were also advised to delay the live footage for some seconds before relaying the same to the viewing audience, otherwise, similar acts are bound to happen.
"We sincerely apologize to our esteemed viewers and other stakeholders for this unfortunate event," a source from the NTV management noted.
While commenting on the development, Dagy Nyce, the presenter for the NTV Mix Party said he was "Nayive about the whole pulocess."
