Museveni's clampdown on journlists and opposition


DP activist and journalist Siraje Lubwama arrested

As President Museveni's clampdown on the voices of criticism to his rule continues, we are getting information that Siraje Lubwama of the Democratic Party and a journalist with the Daily Monitor has been arrested.

Lubwama was arrested in Kampala but we do not yet have details of exactly where and where he has been taken.

Details are still coming in. Lubwama is a regular guest on talk shows on Radio Simba and Radio Buganda.

The vice chairman of the Uganda Young Democrats, Fred Dennis Mukasa Mbidde was arrested last Friday and held without charge, past the 48 hours that the law stipulates.
