Parliament will use the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) 98.0 FM to convey its programs.

The frequency hosts UBC Red Channel, which covers Kampala and the Central Region.

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), Uganda Broadcasting Cooperation (UBC) and Parliament have been discussing the proposal of giving the Red channel to Parliament which has already installed a mast and a studio in their precincts.  

           

Although UCC and UBC initially wanted Parliament to convey its programs through UBC, Parliament was against the proposal. They wanted to own the channel and manage the entire process of production and the content. 

According to Fred Otunnu, the UCC Director Corporate Affairs, Parliament will generate the content that will be hosted on the UBC red channel. He says the channel will be completely dedicated to Parliament and there will not be any interference.    

   

According to Otunnu, Parliament will pay an agreed amount of money to UBC for the cost of running the programs.

Last month, UBC’s Executive Director Winston Agaba said that the frequency could not be given out to Parliament, but a partnership would be established.             

     

The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga says that since Parliament has secured the frequency, the radio will be launched at the end of the month.
