UCC Bans Age Limit Live Broadcasts

Uganda’s communications authority has warned radio and TV stations against broadcasting live content that “promotes a culture of violence amongst the public”.

It said it would take action against anyone violating broadcasting guidelines by suspending or revoking broadcasting licences.

The order comes after media broadcast chaotic scenes from parliament on Tuesday, when fighting broke out among MPs as they prepared to debate the contentious removal of the presidential age limit.

A proposed constitutional change by the ruling NRM party would scrap the upper limit of 75.

Analysts say that NRM lawmakers are pushing to remove barriers that would prevent President Yoweri Museveni, 73, from running in 2021.
