Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda has asked journalists to always be ethical in their reporting.

Uganda is celebrating World Press Freedom Day, which is marked on May 3 annually.

In his message, Kaziimba said that the Church of Uganda recognises the role of media in evangelism but tasked journalists to ensure that ethics are followed to the dot to avoid staining their reputation.

“On this World Press Freedom Day, may we renew our commitment to freedom of the press. I encourage media professionals to remain ethical, accurate and balanced in their reporting,” Kaziimba said.

Adding, “The Church of Uganda acknowledges the role of the media in evangelism and community transformation.”

The day comes at a time when several reports indicate a rapid narrowing operational space for journalists in Uganda and internationally.

According to the United Nations, the day acts as a reminder to governments of the need to respect their commitment to press freedom.

It is also a day of reflection among media professionals about issues of press freedom and professional ethics.

It is also a day of remembrance for those journalists who lost their lives in the pursuit of a story.
