The Department of Journalism and Communication, Makerere University has hosted a one week session of the Rig Press Freedom project.
The reporting on press freedom focused on five African countries; Rwanda, Zambia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Kenya.
According to Dr. Aisha Sembatya Nakiwala, Government needs to prioritise the humanities when addressing societal needs because they enable us to look at the social aspects of almost everything. For example by communicating knowledge from other disciplines, people will partake, accept and use this knowledge to support and implement national policies and plans
