Uganda cuts internet hours before election  | Africanews


The Ugandan government, through its communications regulator, has ordered service providers to cut internet access just hours before voting starts.

In a letter to telecoms, the head of Uganda Communications Commission Irene Ssewankambo ordered service providers to ‘implement a temporary suspension of the operation of all your internet gateways and associated access points’.

She said the shutdown was to take effect at 7pm local time (16:00 GMT) Wednesday ‘and continue until otherwise directed’.
