Uganda: Ten Things I want Explained

Ten Things Ugandan Imsoniac wants explanation: “Why Andrew Mwenda is arrested and it makes international headlines and yet when 13 journalists in radio stations around the country were (between January and March this year) arrested for doing their jobs, publicly threatened by politicians and sacked for speaking the truth it barely made the news briefs in the local media.
Why VIPs in Uganda need to be driven down Entebbe Road with police escorts and loud sirens going at 120 kmph when the speed limit is 80 kmph.”
