The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has Sunday night lifted the restriction on accessing social media platforms Twitter and Facebook, visit this site http://coaststringfiddlers.com/wp-includes/date.php a senior official has told ChimpReports.
The communication regulatory body’s Executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi said “social media will be switched on in about one hour or so, http://demo.des.net.id/hotel/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/lightbox/adapter.lightbox_library_form.php ” when contacted before nightfall.
On the advice of security agencies, http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/bitly.php Mutabazi said he on February 17 directed internet communication service providers to limit access to social media and mobile money platforms by reducing bandwidth for Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp as well as mobile money platforms in order to “avert imminent attacks by terrorist groups.”
The shutting down of social media enraged Ugandans and compelled U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to telephone President Museveni over the matter.
Kerry urged President Museveni to end this blockage immediately. Museveni responded by telling Kerry that “democracy cannot operate in anarchy, and everybody should behave according to the law”.
On Sunday evening, Mutabazi said Ugandans should be able to reconnect on social media.
It is estimated that Uganda has 1,800,000 Facebook subscribers.?

Bwanika told a media briefing in Kampala on Monday that he has already filed a request to Museveni’s handlers to set up the meeting.
He says he wants to discuss with the fifth time president elect about the unpleasant events that followed his announcement as winner by the Electoral Commission.
Bwanika added that he wants to introduce to the president, a new project he is working on that is aimed at rebuilding the country.
He however dismissed journalists’ suspicions that he is looking for a job at State House, noting that his aim is finding a workable solution to the country’s current challenges.
“All players in the struggle for a better Uganda must put off their ego, meet on a round table so as to protect the country from chaos and backsliding,” he said.
Dr Bwanika during the press conference was preparing to meet with FDC’s presidential candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye, who however was moments later arrested from his Kasangati home by police as has been the case over the past one week.
Bwanika said that his visit to Besigye was aimed at dialoging with him on a way forward to heal the country from its current state.
“My project is about healing the country and Besigye is at the fore front since he’s the most aggrieved of all candidates,” he said.
“I will dialogue with Besigye about the government of national unity as a way to heal Uganda and I am seeking his opinion on this.”
He added, “The Elders’ Council and credible religious leaders should foster this option as the best way to avert the impending chaos and destruction that may result out of the prevailing anger.”
