Media to fight order on Kampala terror attacks investigations

Media executives yesterday vowed to challenge an order issued by the Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court barring print and broadcast media houses from reporting or publishing any information about the July 11 twin bombings in Kampala.

I don’t know how Ugandans will get the information as the order is still in place. While government argues that the order is to prevent the media from jeopardizing investigations the total blackout of information might leader to gross human rights violations besides the impact on press freedom and freedom of expression.
