Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) has condemned the torture of journalist while on duty by security forces and called for an end to such brutal acts for the good of the country.

USPA president Sabiiti Muwanga denounced the brutality at a memorial mass for fallen USPA executive members Simon Peter Ekarot, Kenneth Matovu, Leo Kabunga and Francis Batte Jr who perished in a road accident in Lugazi on August 21, 2001 at Christ the King Church in Kampala.

“We as USPA do condemn the torture of our colleagues in the journalism profession by security forces,” Muwanga said.

“An attack on journalists is an attack on our profession. We must strongly come up to condemn it.”

He also appealed to all citizens to donate blood to save lives. The USPA vice president Ritah Aligumah lauded Standard Chartered Bank, City Tyres, UNRA and KCCA FC for supporting the road safety campaign.

She urged people to go Islamic University in Uganda, Kibuli campus on Thursday, Friday at Makerere University Campus and Mukwano Arcade and Saturday in Lugazi to donate blood.
