Media asked to leave issues of politics to politicians

By Ritah Kemigisa;

The minister of Information Technology and Communications Frank Tumwebaze has asked the media to be the voice of the voiceless and leave issues of the politics to politicians.

According to Tumwebaze the media has of recent taken sides when covering and reporting stories especially on the current age limit debate and the grenade attacks where coverage is given to only the opposition and the side of government is always not sought.

He is now calling for balanced reporting among journalists and media houses if the democracy the country has be fighting for the last 55 years is to prevail.
