The United States calls for the immediate release of respected Ugandan human rights attorney @nickopiyo. There will be consequences for those who are continuing to undermine democracy just three weeks before Uganda’s election.

.@OfwonoOpondo for a week our colleagues at @FCAEA have been asking you what the process is for international journalists to come to #Uganda to report on the election.

Why are you refusing to answer?

Is there a ban on journalists coming to do our work?

Yesterday an FCAU member was deliberately targeted & shot at close range with a rubber bullet by a police officer while working, clearly identifed & accredited. Such attacks are unjustified and extremely dangerous. #Uganda|n authorities must call a halt to attacks on journalists

A foreign journalist was last night held at Entebbe airport without proper justification.

More than 11 hours later, the journalist has finally been allowed into Uganda.

Thank you to all those who helped amplify our earlier message.

A foreign journalist has been detained overnight at Entebbe airport with no proper justification.

Foreign journalists have the right to enter #Uganda to work.

Why are the Ugandan authorities detaining journalists?

The BBC is looking for a Senior Journalist - Reporter based in Uganda to provide oversight for a range of TV, Radio & Digital content in English & Swahili which will appeal to young audience and women.

A great opportunity to cover Uganda & East Africa

For women interested in taking up this role, feel free to drop me a DM. I'm happy to give advice.

Police in Uganda say three people have been killed & more injured as sporadic protests spread in Kampala and other parts of the country. Seems like a significant day as unrest is reported in parts of central and eastern Uganda after @HEBobiwine's arrest
