Each May 3 is a global celebration of press freedom and its importance to society. For this year’s World Press Freedom Day (WPFD), journalists and press freedom advocates will focus on media and elections, as well as the role of media in peace and reconciliation processes.

The Kingdom of Buganda has joined the press fraternity to celebrate the annual world press freedom day at railway grounds in Kampala.

Buganda’s Minister for information and Kingdom spokesperson represented the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga during celebrations.

In his remarks, Mr. Kiyimba urged the security officers especially Uganda police, to stop the habit of mistreating journalists and destroying their gadgets. He says the gadgets used in media are so expensive when destroyed the owner/company will incur unexpected costs.

Minister for general duties in the office of the Prime Minister, Mary Karooro Okurut, who represented deputy speaker of parliament Honorable Jacob Oulanya, said it is very important for the journalists to foster a dialogue in case of any misunderstanding met along the lines of executing their duties.

This is the 26th year that WPFD is celebrated around the globe since it was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993. The year’s theme is “Media for Democracy: Journalism and Elections in Times of Disinformation.”
