The Uganda parliament has insisted that it should have its own TV and radio station.
The August house’s suggestion has been defended by Chris Obore the Parliament’s Director for Communication and Public Affairs.
Obore says that if the TV and radio station is set up it will supplement on the parliament reports that the private stations do.
The Director Obore said: “Private stations can’t cover parliament for over 24 hours because they have other duties to deal with other than the House. Thus the stations will be able to give full coverage for the August House.”
Through the funding from the United Nations Development Program, the Radio Station is on progress. Though its proposed TV Station is nowhere for it lucks funding.
The radio will be launched after getting a frequency from the Uganda Communications Commission and when the required radio equipment is brought.
The Director of Corporate Planning and Strategy Mr. Dison Okumu said that it has taken the institution 5 years to get where they’re right now.
