Uganda: We Will Reopen Facebook When They Stop Playing Games – President Museveni

President Museveni said on Friday that Facebook will be fully reopened in Uganda if “they stop playing games.”  

Two years after its activities were banned ahead of the 2021 general election, Facebook remains prohibited in Uganda.

"Facebook are arrogant. They were being used to attack us. 

"When our people tried to answer back they shut us. It has been two years since Facebook was chased out of Uganda. 

"When I checked, Boda Boda and taxis were still moving [in absence of Facebook]; even matooke and milk were still coming. 

"I hope Facebook now knows who is in charge of Uganda!

"When they stop playing games we shall open them," President Museveni said during his engagement with news editors from different media houses in the country."

The president's statement comes just days after the interim executive director of the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), Irene Kagwa, stated that the government is waiting for Facebook, which is currently controlled by Meta, to settle remaining concerns before it is completely reopened.

“On our side, we are waiting for Facebook. We talked [and] we concluded. So, the outstanding issues are on their side. 

"As a government, we are ready to have it come back as soon as they deliver on their promise,” she said.
