Uganda: Gagging the press

Moses Sserwanga writes discusses the link between media freedom and democracy in Uganda: “At Daily Monitor, no less than 10 journalists including senior editors are at various stages of prosecution for alleged publication of false news, criminal libel and sedition. This is irrespective of the fact that all the highlighted offences are obsolete in a democratic society which Uganda purports to be and are in total contravention of the constitution.”
