ABSTRACT

This paper discusses the effect of media laws on media freedoms. Considering the media as

part and parcel of civil society, the author argues that media independence is critical to in the

achievement of a tree and democratic society. To do so, it traces the historical evolution of

Media in Uganda showing how they have progressed over the years.

However, it is postulated that the growth of democracy in Uganda can be grearly enhanced b)

the support of media. Therefore the media laws should not be applied in such a way as to

deter media fi·eedoms.

The paper then discusses the law and policy framework in which media operates in Uganda

before making proposals for solutions to the challenges that encumber their work.

The paper also discusses the problems encountered by the media in the process of promoting

democratic politics. These include the legal and political environment, in which the media

operate. This paper analyses the role of media in Uganda'.

Findings from this study reveal that the media does have a role to play in developing

democracy and human rights. This role is important because it gives the media responsibility of serving the interests of the citizens and being the mediators of the democratic process.
