However, Journalists were mistreated by the security forces while covering the riots that were going on yesterday in Kampala especially around Kiseka market over Bobi Wine’s arrest.

Journalism is indeed not a crime! 

Shockingly, hunkers including Juma Kirya and Ronald Galiwango were captured and detained in unknown premises, which reveled a bad image to most Ugandans.

To add-on, a known professional photojournalist who works for Reuters called James Akena was hit and captured by the military who were exchanging fights with Bobi’s supporters in Kampala over their protest.
