The closure of the Monitor and Red Pepper Publications entered its seventh day on Monday as police continue to occupy them under the pretext of looking for a letter written by General David Sejusa, the Coordinator of Intelligence Services. KFM and Dembe, two radio station owned by the Nation Media Group, the mother company that owns Daily Monitor, also remain closed.
With just four days to the end of the exercise on May 31, mobile telecom operators say they are still receiving a huge turn up of those coming to register. Kevin Magomu, the Airtel Area Sales Manager Hoima, says the numbers have been increasing over the last one week. Magomu says they have been registering not less than 300 phone users per day.
