NBS Front Line, a widely watched local political talk show has Thursday night ended prematurely after panelist Ofwono Opondo leaped from his seat and wanted to rip Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago apart live on air.
Lukwago’s crime was to remind The Executive Director of Uganda Media Center that he has ever shot and killed a person 18 years ago at Kampala Parents.
This allegation, many debaters use as leverage to neutralize the belligerent government publicist whenever they appear with him on a show.
This time round, viewers of NBS were served with action packed- like movie when the political show turned into a boxing ring of sorts as Opondo rained punches on Lukwago.
As if that was not enough, the armed government official threaten to spill his brain with a bullet.
“I can throw you out of this show. Yes I can throw you out,” Opondo charged.
The moderator of the show Charles Mwanguhya Mpagi looked as the two leaders flexed before the producers ended the show.

Lukwago has since run to social media to express his discontent.
“Short of words to explain what has happened to me at the NBS TV Frontline. Horrible, despicable!!. Fellow Ugandans, it’s Horrible. My only prayer is that I get out of this place safely!” he posted on Facebook.
It remains unclear if NBS management will ban Opondo over the unethical conduct.
