UGANDA SOLDIERS ASSAULT JOURNALIST FOR COVERING A PROTEST (VIDEO)




Ugandan soldiers were spotted beating a Reuters journalist, James Akena, for taking coverage of a protest.

 The Reuters Journalist, who according to colleagues, was “beaten badly and taken away by Military”, shoots for the UK based media house here in Uganda and the Great Lake region.

He was reportedly picked up by the Police and the Ugandan Soldiers continued their clamp down on sporadic riots that erupted Monday afternoon in Kampala over the arrest of MP Robert Kyagulanyi.

Foreign Correspondents’ Association of Uganda (FCAU), a body that unites journalists covering Uganda for foreign media organizations, have however called for the release of their colleague as initial report alleged that he was been detained at the Kampala Central Police Station.
