Police have launched an investigation into threats made against veteran journalist, Rick Wayne.
Reports are that a caller to Wayne’s show, “Talk” aired on DBS on Thursday, made threatening remarks to the journalist, while stating that if the opposition wins the election, there would be civil unrest.
The caller also reportedly told Wayne on Thursday that he is a “bad boy”, who has guns, urging the talk show host and publisher to desist from speaking in the way that he does.
But Wayne who seem less bothered by the comments made to him on live television, told sections of the media that it is just an expression of an angry citizen “speaking his mind.”
The journalist said that the situation should be looked at from the point of view that free speech is an important constitutional right and everyone should be allowed to express themselves freely.
