Media activists have said that there is an increasing brutality imposed against local media houses by government which is a signal of clamping down the freedom of expression stated by the constitution.
Speaking at a press conference in Kampala today, the national coordinator Human rights network for journalists- Uganda, Wokulira Ssebaggala noted that it is unfair for government to use excessive force against the media which feeds the nationals with the information they need and also blamed government for having weak institutions that speaks on its behalf.
Mr Ssebagala cited out the journalists and media houses in Mubende, Kampala and Fort portal districts which have received serious government interrogation to the extent that many have lost their jobs coupled with media house owners and put a ban on political talk shows.
The network for human rights however urged government to re-structure its systems of communication to match those of its critics so as to balance the equation.
