As Journalists in Uganda are warming up to join the world in commemoration of the international press freedom day tomorrow 3rd May, Ugandan authorities continue to abuse their freedom of access to public information.
Today Journalist Ssematimba Hezekia commonly known as Bwegiire attached to Radio Simba has been apprehended by police officers who tried to block him from covering the food distribution process in Kawempe Ttula.
Police is still keeping silent on the reasons for his arrest but apparent information indicates that he is being incarcerated at Ttula police post.
This is how freedom of press is being violated and oppressed in Uganda. Who is safe? That’s a question for discussion.
