The Media Council should ban the publication and distribution of pornographic materials, the executive director of Family Life Network, Stephen Langa, has said. He, however, commended the council for prohibiting the sale of newspapers with pornographic content. He said this at a press conference where several copies of pornographic newspapers were burnt under the campaign â€œaxe them and burn themâ€ at the Global AIDS Initiative Centre in Makerere.
The presence of the UPDF in the north should be reduced and replaced by the Police to enable the people return to normal life, the Netherlands Ambassador, Yoka Brandt, has called. â€œIncreased presence of the police is an important element of the move from emergency to recovery. It is part of a normalisation process which should lead to the gradual replacement of the military by civilian policing structures,â€ Brandt said on Tuesday.
