According to him, the decision by the social network to shut down several accounts of a network in Uganda linked to the country’s Ministry of Information was unacceptable.

He added that Ugandan had its owners and that no outsider would be allowed to dictate how the country operates.

The Facebook accounts shut down were allegedly linked to the “Citizens Interaction Center” at the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology.
