The authorities begin shutting down around 50 private radio stations.

first_img Uganda urged to free two journalist held since last week on libel charges News The Ugandan authorities have begun shutting down private media that have not paid for their permits. Four Kampala-based radio stations and one television station were forced to stop broadcasting on 8 January. Reporters Without Borders called on the authorities to be more flexible. News News January 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The authorities begin shutting down around 50 private radio stations. Uganda blocks social media and messaging apps, isolating election UgandaAfrica Organisation News Receive email alerts to go further RSF_en March 12, 2021 Find out more January 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Uganda June 4, 2021 Find out more The Ugandan authorities have started shutting down privately-owned media who have not paid for their operating permits. They have around 50 radio stations in their sites countrywide. Four Kampala-based radio stations and one television station were forced to stop broadcasting on 8 January.”It is reasonable for a government to get private media to pay for a permit, but this does not justify the wave of closures that has started,” said Reporters Without Borders.”Most of the media involved are not commercial and do not have the means to pay the tax imposed on them. The authorities should show more flexibility and find a compromise that will not bring about the demise of half of the country’s private radio stations.””It will be the Ugandan people who will suffer the consequences by being deprived of much of their news,” said the international press freedom organisation.The Broadcasting Council, that regulates TV and radio, on 8 January seized the transmitters of four radio stations in the capital (Kampala African Radio, Mama FM, Kampala FM and Top Radio) and from a television station, Top TV.Dennis Lukaaya, spokesman for the Broadcasting Council said these media had not paid their permits and he estimated that almost half the around 100 radio stations and three TV stations operating in the country were in the same situation.Private radio stations are supposed to pay an annual state tax of 3 million shillings (about 1,300 euros). Some of them simply do not have the funds. Margaret Sentamu, head of Mama FM told a local daily newspaper that she thought the authorities should make a distinction between commercial radio that broadcasts advertisements and community radio which have no resources of their own.”It is unfair that the Broadcasting Council should impose the same tax on all media,” she added.The authorities announced that they will continue in the next few days to close media which have not paid up in the country’s interior.

first_imgJeff Waterman was the IMCA Modified feature winner on opening night at Lee County Speedway. (Photo by D&M Racing Photography) Friday’s 20-lap Budweiser IMCA Modified main saw Dennis LaVeine and Dakota Simmons draw the front row. LaVeine took advantage of his spot to jump out into the lead over Andrew Schroeder and Simmons.  While LaVeine worked the bottom of the track, Waterman used the top to try and wrestle the lead away. Coming off turn four on lap nine, Waterman used his momentum off the top to edge LaVeine at the line to take over the top spot.  By Brian Neal  DONNELLSON, Iowa (April 12) – Jeff Waterman began his pursuit of another Lee County Speedway track title with the opening night IMCA Modified feature victory. center_img Other winners were Jeremy Pundt in the Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Cars, Brayton Carter in the Roberts Tire Center IMCA Northern SportMods and Jake Houston in the Discount Tire & Service IMCA Sport Compacts. Schroeder looked under LaVeine over the next five laps, before the first caution of the race appeared. On the restart, LaVeine jumped back out front with Waterman, who started ninth, coming from fifth to second.  Waterman maintained his advantage following a lap 10 restart as Schroeder and LaVeine battled for second. The final half of the race would go caution free, which allowed Waterman to pull away. LaVeine was second and John Oliver Jr. took third. last_img read more

Exceptional trio celebrated at coaching awards

first_img14 Dec 2016 Exceptional trio celebrated at coaching awards Three exceptional men who support the country’s most promising golfers were celebrated at an awards dinner at the England Golf coaching conference. Standing ovations marked the announcement of Yorkshire’s Steve Robinson as 2016 Coach of the Year, Sussex’s Alan Covey as Volunteer Manager of the Year, and Cheshire’s Alan Thompson as the winner of the Lifetime Service Award. Nigel Edwards, England Golf Performance Director, commented: “These are truly exceptional people who stand out for the support and encouragement they provide to our golfers, helping them to be the best they can.” The conference, attended by county, regional and national coaches and managers, had the theme of creating a winning culture – and the achievements of the three award winners helped to highlight this. Steve Robinson (pictured top © Leaderboard Photography) has enjoyed a spectacular 2016, inspiring the England women’s team to become European champions for the first time in 23 years. Victory was particularly sweet because his teams had been involved in bronze medal play-offs in the previous three years, but have left the championships empty handed on each occasion. His players included Bronte Law, who has just turned professional after a stellar amateur career when she was ranked second in the world, played in three Curtis Cup teams, won the Annika Award as the top US college player and was European amateur champion. She sent a message to the conference saying: “The gold medal represents all Robbo’s work as a coach and mentor. He is not just a coach to me, he is a friend and I could not think of anyone who deserves this award more.” Robinson, who is based at Sandburn Hall, also coaches the Yorkshire boys’ and women’s teams – and between them they’ve won 11 English county championships. This year, three boys from the six-strong county squad have represented England and Robinson is also the personal coach to Charlie Thornton who won the England Golf Boys’ Order of Merit. He summed up how he creates a winning culture by saying: “It’s all about building relationships with the players and making sure you know their vision and their mission.” Alan Covey (pictured right © Leaderboard Photography) is the Sussex junior manager and an England Golf regional manager – and has such an impact that he received three separate nominations for the award of Volunteer Manager of the Year. One of his proposers summed him up: “One major factor of his success is that all the juniors like him. His encouragement and dedication to them is very evident and rewarded by their respect for him. I know many players who are now over 18 that keep in regular contact with him letting him know how they are progressing.” Within Sussex, Covey helps to organise coaching development for young players who wish to progress, and works with the county squads for players from U12 to U18 age groups. As an England Golf regional manager he is generous in sharing his knowledge and experience with other managers. He organises many events, including a national start-of-season championship for U16 boys and girls – and he also took an England team to the 2016 Canadian International Junior Challenge and encouraged them to victory. Covey commented on his award: “This isn’t just about me, it’s about every manager out there and all of us want to make a difference.” Alan Thompson was unable to be at the presentation of the Lifetime Service Award but delegates were told how he has dedicated his career to helping golfers achieve their full potential at all levels, working with club players, county golfers, elite national amateurs and top professionals. He was Cheshire coach for 25 years and was the professional at Heswall Golf Club until 2012 – when he retired to concentrate on his coaching. He’s been assistant coach to the England Men’s A Squad for many years and this season has been especially memorable with squad player Scott Gregory winning the Amateur Championship and the England Golf Men’s Order of Merit. He’s also taught many European Tour players, including Lee Slattery and Ryder Cup player Jamie Donaldson. Steve Burnett, the England Golf Men’s Performance Manager, paid tribute to Thommo’s achievements and said: “We want to say thank you for all your years of dedication, there are a lot of players out there who are very grateful.” During the conference delegates also heard from speakers including Sergio Lara-Bercial who has studied ‘serial winning coaches’ and Baroness Sue Campbell, who discussed turning ‘good into great.’  She chaired UK Sport from 2003-2013, presiding over Team GB and Paralympic GB’s largest medal haul in living memory; she has been the chair of the Youth Sport Trust since 2005 and she is the FA’s head of women’s football. Ben Stow and Ashley Chesters, who were top England amateurs before embarking on their professional careers, attended a Q&A session with delegates. Stow was the Brabazon Trophy champion and is now a Challenge Tour player, while Chesters was the double European amateur champion and has just won his European Tour card. Both have been supported by England Golf’s Give Back scheme which provided them with a number of Challenge Tour starts; in return they give back a proportion of earnings over a certain level to support the squad programme.last_img read more
