He noted that the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda and Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights allow publication of any information that is in public interest.


“The media should be the fundamental of democracy as clearly enunciated in the purpose of an efficient, effective, transparent and accountable Government, to empower the public and effectively scrutinize and participate in government decisions that affect them,” added Nsubuga..


Nsubuga said: “The media helps the NRM government to disseminate the message of need for liberation during the time of capturing power but it is quit absurd that it is now infringing on this freedom of expression.”


He further referred to the banning of the Citizen Newspaper (Munansi) by the Obote government as a vehicle which was used to tarnish the UPC government by the NRM to get to power.


He added that it is a clear indication that the ruling party is now worn out and on the verge of collapsing since it’s now violating its core values.


On the same note, DP has denied all allegations that they are preparing for the return of Gen. David Sejjusa with the aim of parading him as their flag bearer 2016.


Nsubuga said it is wrong information circulating and this has never been resolved by the party and Gen. Sejjusa is not a DP member given that he has not yet resigned his position in the Army.
