“This has spread a lot of panic and stress among media practitioners,” Ssempala told journalists today, Monday at Hotel Triangle in Kampala.

“This is not fair, especially for journalists who cover politics now that the country is heading to the 2016 National Elections. This puts the lives of the journalists in question at great risk.

Ssempala also noted that there is a possibility that the 150 journalists who were reportedly compiled by State House Operatives were reportedly presented on accusations of being biased in their coverage in favour of Premier Amama Mbabazi.

Human Rights Network for Journalists demands an explanation from media managers, proprietors and State House as far as the infamous list and its intentions is concerned.

“It is our obligation to protect journalists and this allegation has narrowed the space of these journalists.
