Why Ssebagala lost his “Copyright in a speech” case.

It would seem that Al Hajji Nasser Ntege Ssebagala’s woes have now evolved beyond Politics. The witty politician has lost a case he filed against MTN Uganda (and SMS Media added as a third party). Ssebagala claimed to have copyright in sound recordings of him answering questions put to him by journalists, following the proceedings of the parliamentary vetting committee after his ministerial appointment as Minister without portfolio.

The legal issues involving Dominic Ongwen’s Surrender

The lead story this week is the surrender/capture of a senior commander in the rebel Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) movement, Dominic Ongwen.

Ongwen is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The ICC became actively involved in Uganda after peace talks in 2003 failed between the government and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
