Kampala: The Uganda Communications Commission( UCC) has released a list of radios authorized to broadcast in Uganda further cautioning those not yet approved by the regulatory body to acquire authorization as soon as possible to avoid closure. This comes at the heels of 2021 general elections where the commission is doing everything possible to ensure ‘compliance’ during elections.

It’s worth noting that In June this year, the government ordered all radios to re-apply for licenses in order to enable the government to roll out a new license regime, which started in July.

According to the acting Executive Director of UCC, Eng. Irene Kaggwa Sewankambo, the changes were necessitated by “the need to foster a more enabling environment for the provision of radio broadcasting services in Uganda, in accordance with sections 5(1) (b), 6(1) (e) and 39 of the UCC Act, 2013”.
