You can now read journalist
Andrew Mwenda‘s newspaper, The Independent, online. Based in Kampala, Uganda, the paper promises “uncensored news, views and analysis” — a promise that has already led to government threats against the paper’s printer. Mwenda spoke at TEDGlobal 2007 and was a panelist on the BBC debate hosted last week at TED in Monterey.

In today’s Independent, a headline reads: “Andrew Mwenda summoned to CID” — the Uganda police’s Criminal Investigations Department. More on this story as it develops.
