According East African  the spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and the police Chief Political Commissar Asan Kasingye were equally sued by Seguya Taylor.

He averred that the President and the two officials use their Twitter handles as public forums to disseminate information about activities of their public offices in their official capacities and to get feedback from citizens, and therefore blocking him is “illegal, improper and irrational”.

Mr Seguya said that as a citizen living abroad, he is only able to get information relating to his country’s governance and to communicate to the respective officers through social media.

His words, “That before being blocked, I used the same Twitter social media platform handles to communicate my views, dismays and suggestions to the respective officers.”
