Although no official statement has been made in this regard, we can report that the government has removed the ban on social networking site Facebook.
Bazzup stated that the decision was made at the highest level yesterday. Later, official communication will be made.
In early 2021, only days before the general election, Facebook and Twitter were banned in retaliation for the services’ decision to de-register some NRM members’ accounts.
The Twitter restriction was revoked a few months later, but the Facebook ban remained in place.
Previously, Ugandan Facebook users could only access the site through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Facebook can now be accessed without the use of a VPN.
