The coverage of political activities in Uganda has undergone several challenges. There was a major point in the politics of Uganda when Amin was the ruler for 8 years (1 971 * 1979). This period saw the political process collapse. Amin’s regime used fear and terror as central instruments of policy and media control. A large number of journalists and politicians lost their lives. It is sad to note that even today there are situations where journalists who have given chance to the opposition to air out their views have been arrested. This brings us to the fact that there is need to put in place independent regulatory frameworks to promote the growth of a strong, free and diverse broadcasting sector that serves the public interest.
