Government Tells Media To Report Responsibly On Afghan Refugees

The Government has warned the media against irresponsible reporting on the arrival of the Afghan refugees in Uganda. It said this irresponsible manner may endanger the National Security in the country.

The State Minister for Regional Affairs, John Mulimba, presented a ministerial statement on the refugees and Ugandans stuck in Afghanistan.

He said there is a need to keep the confidentiality of Afghan refugees as they may be a target of the Taliban government.

Mulimba told the house that there are presently only two Ugandans who are still stranded in Afghanistan. He attributed their prolonged stay there to the challenges faced accessing the airport in Kabul.

Mulimba didn’t go into details but told the parliament the refugees are on their way to their final destination. He also said the United States Government cater for all the bills.

‘’The government will in the coming period continue to engage with the US Embassy in Kampala to extend the necessary assistance to the evacuees from Afghanistan,’’ he said.

Furthermore, he sounded a warning to the media against irresponsible reporting on the matter.

In other issues, he talked about the continued kidnapping of Ugandan traders in South Sudan. He said his counterpart Okello Oryem is in Juba to try and resolve the matter.
