What threatens Press Freedom in Uganda

A Presentation during the Public Dialogue on Media Freedom

Before analyzing press freedom in Uganda, it is important to actually first look at freedom generally. While listening to the BBC on my way here, there was a discussion between Humphrey Hawksley, the author of a book called “Democracy Kills,” and a lady who was arguing passionately, saying that, in regard to Libya, Syria and Iraq, it was very good that these dictators were overthrown even if the cost was chaos because dictatorship is not a sustainable form of government.
