Gov’t drops Social media tax

In July 2019, URA reported a collection of only Shs 49.5 billion out of the targeted Shs 284 billion from OTT as more Ugandans opted to use virtual private networks (VPNs) to access social media sites without paying the daily Shs 200 for the tax.

CEC will not determine the next Speaker – Kadaga

“We are in a multiparty dispensation, but somebody to be a Speaker becomes a Speaker for all of us, not a Speaker for NRM. I think your discussions in CEC can be pedestrian discussions, can be corridor whispers; they will not bind this House… CEC does not superimpose ideas on Parliament. I don’t think anyone of us should accept to go that direction,” Basalirwa said.
