It however remains ironic that not a shred of evidence has been produced to the public some forty eight hours after the incident to justify a possible police warrant on a very senior political figure in the country.

Without prejudice to the outcome of the police investigation, one would have expected some form of video, picture or audio evidence in public domain at this moment especially so when the alleged incident happened in the twenty first century of modern technology at broadcasting house – the state broadcaster for that matter.

So some would be tempted to ask at this juncture why the hue and cry of a police warrant on Leema for an issue with no public proof that could provoke unnecessary tension at a politically charged moment like this?

The several burning questions seeking answers include but not limited to the following.

What exactly happened at the SLBC? Did Leema abuse/insult or hit anybody? Did he damage any property at the state broadcaster? Is it a crime to show up at a media institution and demand your right to reply? Would it be professional for a media institution to refuse a right to reply of an individual or institution? Has the SLBC been able to provide a single evidence (video, audio or picture) of Leema behaving riotously at their premises? Would the SLBC allow itself to be used by state operators desperately seeking justification to silence the opposition? Or maybe Leema is becoming too rude to exist in a fragile national moment like this?

Let the SLBC help us with the evidence and we will help them teach Leema how to behave in a civilized society.

Otherwise, the public would be left to believe that the SLBC is conniving with state operatives to silence the opposition.
