Andrew is among the many journalists who have suffered Police brutality. Human Rights Network for Journalists Uganda has been fighting for justice and rights of the journalist. Mr Robert Ssempala, the HRNJ-U Coordinator had earlier said they would follow the case to its logical conclusion.
He said the journalists working for various media houses in the country should resist the impunity they are subjected to through concerted efforts. He said there was need for team work for journalists supported by their media houses to fight for their rights in their line of duty.
In a related development, Mr Ssempala said HRNJ-U would take up the case of defamation against two journalists from West Nile who reported on the Adjumani RDC, Mr Agnes Akello, the DPC, Mr Peter Ojokuna and the former NFA Supervisor, Mr Joseph Otim. The officials were accused in a council report for alleged plundering of Zoka forest
