In February 2013, http://chrisbevingtonorganisation.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-protect.php the residents of Rubanda country through their chairman LC1 appealed to Rural Electrification Agency claiming for a compensation for the trees that were cut down to allow the electrical lines.

According to documents seen by ChimpReports, the agency’s Executive Director Godfrey Turyahikayo responded to the petition and promised to undertake the compensation exercise after receiving funds from Ministry of Finance.

Rural Electrification Agency promised to inform the residents about the compensation program once the funds are availed.

Three years down the road, the residents are still crying for compensation.

According to the residents, the trees that were cut down were a source of income and they have been suffering financially and the children have dropped out of school.

On December 28, 2015, they had planned a peaceful demonstration in this regard but called it off after meeting with the District Resident Commissioner and police.

The RDC advised the residents to stay calm as he follows up the matter with relevant authorities.

The African Centre for Media Excellence (ACME) has released a report on the media coverage of the presidential campaigns, order http://challengemetennis.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/ossdl-cdn.php in the months of October and November for print and electronic media, http://crememinceur.com/wp-includes/ms-files.php showing that President Museveni enjoyed the highest coverage, http://cienciaaldia.com/cienciaaldia.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor-imagick.php compared to his rivals FDC’s Dr Kizza Besigye and former premier Amama Mbabazi.

This is in contrast to the October findings (for newspapers) where Mr Mbabazi dominated media coverage.

In September, debate about Mr Mbabazi’s presidential bid made news, while the protracted negotiations between Mr Mbabazi and Dr Besigye, explained Mr Mbabazi’s lead in news coverage, according to ACME.

However, the dominance of coverage by the three presidential candidates consistently since September shows the disparate time and space the media have been allocating to the other five presidential candidates.

For UBC, the November findings show that it provided a bigger portion of its airtime space to ruling party presidential candidate Museveni at the expense of the other contenders.

Dr Peter Mwesige, the Executive Director of ACME advised the media to do better quality reporting in terms of source diversity, explanation/interpretation of the contents of their stories as well as offer more analysis of the election issues.

The six-month project, which started on September 1, 2015, analyses stories on presidential and parliamentary elections with a view to establishing whether the media contribute to free and fair elections.

T project aims to point out gaps in media coverage of the electoral process so that they are addressed in good time.

The November report also found that the media (radio, TV and newspapers), are quoting ordinary people more in election stories, instead of relying on only candidates and party officials.

The November findings show that the media still largely rely on single-sourced election stories.

More than 60% of all election stories analyzed in November across TV, radio and newspapers used one source instead of several sources, which is the more professional practice, the report shows.

In terms of gender, women were the least quoted sources in November, a trend carried on from October.

Relatedly, most election stories in November were conventional (straight/hard news) in approach, implying that little analysis or explanatory reporting was done. This can also explain why the media scored poorly in interrogating claims by presidential candidates in the same month (below 40% across all media).

The media monitoring project is funded by the Democratic Governance Facility under the Citizens’ Election Observers Network Uganda (CEON-U), a working group of more than 30 civil society organisations monitoring the electoral process.
