The independent News magazine was founded to provide an independent platform for news-reporting and the discussion of public issues. The founders believe on the basis of strong and incontrovertible evidence – that the space for independent journalism in Uganda has been greatly compromised by the state. The Independent will always strive to achieve the highest standards of journalism: to be fair and balanced, to be impartial and to exercise a high level of integrity.
We at the Independent believe that to sustain our democratization process in our country, Ugandans must be willing to sacrifice their time money and lives in the defense of liberty. We therefore promise that we will never sacrifice the values of democracy, freedom and liberty at the altar of business deals.
