On going...the official launch of the Foreign Press Association, Africa. A continent wide body with members in the diaspora too. It's a great initiative with a depth of knowledge and experience of covering the continent. Congratulations! #ForeignPressAfrica
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 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
