He said this while at the end-of-year party he organized to appreciate the work of journalists.
“You find someone fabricating news about the kingdom, be factual. How can we bring back Buganda on top [if you publish fake news]? Learn to carry this noble duty with professionalism. The country will trust you. Ugandans will love news,” he said.
Mayiga noted that the media is very important especially in spreading information. He, therefore, asked the government to involve media in all things.
“Be it Parliament of Uganda, courts of law, none of them can fully fulfill their responsibilities without the media. Ugandans cannot know the responsibilities and the performance of these agencies unless the media is involved. So the media is very important in the growth of the nation,” he said.
On top of this, Prince David Wasajja too asked the media to follow the norms of the kingdom.
“Before the Katikkiro took office, the issues regarding dissemination of news from the kingdom to the people were a very big challenge. It was sporadic. It depended on the collaboration between the officials and the media.”
