The Director of Public Prosecution- DPP Mike Chibita has described the level of journalism in the country as narrow and lacking research.

Chibita was on Thursday speaking at a training of journalists at Fairway hotel organized by Strengthening Uganda’s Anti-corruption Response (SUGAR) on reporting on corruption.

According to Chibita, journalists are replicating statements from court, and many have relied on statements from the office of the DPP, instead of independently verifying and sourcing for news stories creatively. He also said the media is not doing enough investigative stories, and are poor at research.

Chibita also says that instead of being whistle blowers, journalists have lost interest in very important news stories that could help the country.
