NON-GRADUATE JOURNALISTS BARRED FROM COVERING UGANDAN PARLIAMENT PROCEEDINGS

KAMPALA, If you don’t have a degree, please pack your pen and notebook in a bag and leave the Press Galley of Uganda's parliament.

According to a letter to editors of various media houses in the country, Okello Obabaru, the Deputy Clerk to Parliament, argues that the degree requirement will enable journalists to report accurately when covering both committee and plenary sessions.

“A journalist designated by a media house to cover Parliament is required to demonstrate that he/she has a Bachelor's degree in Journalism, Communication or related fields and has practised Journalism for at least three years,” states the letter dated Jan 11, 2016.
