Gen. David Muhoozi Sorry That UPDF Beat Journalists


The Chief of Defence Forces(CDF), Gen. David Muhoozi has apologised on behalf of the UPDF in a presser for the beating that journalists received yesterday when they were covering Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu delivering his petition to the UN Human Rights Offices in Kololo.

Gen. Muhoozi has said what happened was regrettable, not sanctioned and not justified and promised that the injured journalists’ medical bills will be catered for by the UPDF and that action will be taken against errant soldiers who committed this offence.

Muhoozi has said journalists are partners of government who are very crucial therefore they will engage the media fraternity to see how to work well together and in the meantime encouraged the journalists to go to the field branded to avoid such eventualities.
