A cross section of stakeholders have challenged the elite class in Uganda to take action against political and social injustices using social media platforms.

During a one day national conference on the impact of social media on Uganda’s political and social landscape held here in Kampala, the participants drawn from government, civil society and academia have lashed at government shut down of social media during the February elections as a disguise to protect political interests rather than promote national security.

The participants have urged government to focus on the benefits of social media as a development and democratic approach to make it more accountable to the people.
