Today started out fairly uneventful – that is until i logged on.
Then my inbox held the surprise “… TRP, you are in one of the tabloids… ” – and indeed it was true.
Published in one of Uganda’s Infamous tabloids pictures stolen off facebook + in print my full names and a ludicrous caption about me.
When I got over the initial shock and righteous anger, I was duly informed by someone much older and calmer – Do Nothing. Don’t fight them. If you do, it will get worse.
Is that what we have come to? Ugandan Publications, should we not expect much from you? Is this what you have resorted to – stealing Facebook Profile Pictures & taking names off and slandering our names? Are our reputations to be put at stake because you want to make a quick buck? Is this really what you have stooped to?
Is there even a body in place that watches to make sure this doesn’t happen? Any laws in place that are effective to put this to a stop? I’m sure there are number of people who have been slandered by this particular tabloid – in fact a friend was recently informed that she had appeared in this tabloid – and she doesn’t even live in Uganda/nor is she a Ugandan.
I mean seriously, do we move two steps forward then take five steps back?
