Yesterday was the International Press Freedom Day. In Uganda, there is nothing to celebrate about press freedom. The criminal regime has made journalists targets of extreme violence and repression. All citizens including journalists have a duty to put an end to this madness. pic.twitter.com/TMEn1oESJY

The politician, was among world leaders who sent out messages.This is in a bid to articulate for press freedom.Considering his past experience.When he was vying for the presidential position in Uganda.He urged fellow citizens,including journalists not to tire.But to continue fighting to the end .The brutality against freedom of the media.
Many are difficult moments when journalists have been harassed.Even sometimes , their working tools have been destroyed.Hence as people of goodwill.We should join hands together.This is in a bid to ensure the freedom of the press.
Press Freedom Day,is normally celebrated to mark the fundamental principles of the press.It is a day when different stakeholders evaluate press freedom around the world.It also addresses suffering of journalists in their line of duty.
Therefore,journalists also should play their role appropriately.This is by ensuring that information shared remains for the public good.
