FCAU is concerned about reports that journalists covering Bobi Wine's election campaign in Kalangala are being arrested and assaulted by security forces and that journalists working for online outlets are being separated from newspaper and broadcasting colleagues for different treatment.

Journalists report they are being stopped from using their phones.

Security forces must not interfere with journalists' possessions without a court warrant and must not attempt to block journalists from reporting events as they happen.

On Monday Information Minister Hon. Judith Nabakooba said she would listen to journalists and resolve our issues.

What is the Minister doing to to ensure journalists’ rights are being respected in Kalangala today?

Police to block unaccredited journalists from covering elections

UGANDA MEDIA UPDATE

FCAU continues to be concerned about attacks on media practitioners in Uganda ahead of the January 2021 elections and calls for action from authorities.

Below are some of the key events this week.

A key focus is the directive from the Media Council of Uganda for all journalists in the country to re-apply or apply for accreditation. This is a costly exercise for some journalists and could see many barred from doing their jobs.

14th Dec 2020: The Uganda police spokesperson Fred Enanga announced that starting on 21st December 2020, only accredited journalists will be allowed to cover political campaigns and events.

Some context and background from the African Centre for Media Excellence: https://acme-ug.org/2020/12/16/police-to-block-unaccredited-journalists-from-covering-elections/

15/12/2020. Kampala Uganda: According to the Daily Monitor - one of their journalists was beaten by the Ugandan People Defence Forces (UPDF) while covering events outside the Electoral Commission in the city. He identified himself as press when first confronted by soldiers but was beaten regardless.

Full report here: shorturl.at/emyRV

16/12/2020. Kampala Uganda: Media accreditations for FCAU members and other journalists have begun to be processed after the normal accreditations were abruptly revoked by the Media Council last week.

The Council presented this as a simple reissuing exercise which was found to be untrue. They have introduced additional requirements, including to submit examples of work and asking journalists entering from abroad to provide Interpol certificates.

acme-ug.org The Uganda Police announced Monday that starting 21 December 2020, only journalists accredited by the Media Council of Uganda will be allowed to cover political campaigns and other electoral events…

How has conservation in Africa become militarised? And what does that mean for local people?

Funded by Germany, trained by former members of Israelis special forces, they describe the people who live in the forest as "terrorists".
