Any unauthorized use is strictly prohibited unless one bears a written consent from an authorized employee in our company.

Every user of this site automatically agrees not to use any of its contents in unlawful purposes to violate Kampala Dispatch rights or the rights of any third party or Kampala Dispatch affiliates.

Emails, including attachments, sent are considered confidential to the intended recipient. If any receiver wrongfully receives an email or attachment, they are bound from forwarding, copying or acting upon the message.

Code of Conduct

Your use of the Site is subject to all applicable Constitution and other laws and regulations and, in some cases, international treaties applicable under Ugandan law. Persons are therefore not allowed to use, or allow others to use the site in manners that are; defamatory, harmful, indecent, obscene, ethically offensive, abusive or threatening to our audience or negatively reflect our reputation as a company.

We also discourage any person or enterprise from using any of our contents and features to advertise or becoming a supplier to us in connection with the site, send junk mail, chain letters, unsolicited messages or so called “spamming,” violating Kampala Dispatch rights or the rights of others.


The Kampala Dispatch handles errors in the following way: If the error is a simple typo that doesn’t change facts or understanding of the story, we consider it a minor change and simply correct it without further mention. If the error is substantive or one of fact, we change it, add an asterisk *, then a note at the bottom saying when it was corrected and what was wrong originally. On a breaking news story, we may overwrite the text of an article several times as the story develops. Due to the urgency of the news and time constraints, we will not mention the exact changes in each version – we expect understanding that it is a story that is still developing.
