On Wednesday, URA sealed off the offices of The Observer at Tagore Crescent in Kamwokya Kampala for alleged non-tax compliance. A team of URA enforcement officers stormed the offices and locked the main gates with seals.
The study focused on health reports in Daily Monitor, New Vision, The Observer, The Independent and Bukedde. The study shows that the five publications carried more hard news compared to other stories.
Deogracious Katongole, a political science student at Makerere University told URN at around 11am that he had also tried to access the Daily Monitor website in vain. According to Katamba, some of his colleagues decided to Virtual Private Network-VPN, which allows user to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network
