Uganda’s internet usage has grown in recent years with over 10 million users. The usage provides a new digital landscape that facilitates the work of human rights defenders, activists, journalists, minority groups and citizens.

However, for over 10 years, research reports have showed that as internet usage increases, the more the state continues to violate citizens’ digital rights. Speaking during a report launch on Friday in Kampala, Dorothy Mukasa the Executive Director of Unwanted Witness Uganda said that each day that passes by, there is an increase in violation of people’s rights by the state.

She noted that some of the issues stopping people from enjoying their digital rights include the unfavourable national legal policy framework and ignorance of the policy implementors.
