Press freedom isn't the biggest problem in Uganda

Sseppuuya, executive director of Monitor Publications, isn't that worried about the press freedom in his home country, Uganda. He says, "We have a relatively high standard of press freedom in our country." The main problem they have is access to information. 

He has been participating in the former WAN's activities since 1996. "I guess WAN does very well in all terms according to press freedom and problems with free speech," says Sseppuuya.
