Published by Olive Kabatwairwe

The 4th Assurance Process conducted in 2020, in the middle of the Global pandemic, COVID-19, attracted media attention across media houses in Uganda. Following the launch of the report on 10th February, 2021, at the Protea hotel, Kampala, journalists and media houses developed interest to further speak and write about the findings.

Starting 10th to 14th February 2021, over 20 media houses across the country, have talked about the Assurance Report, through their news bulletins, in online publications, print media and social media. Social media influences have built interest speaking about the findings across their platforms. The CoST Uganda social media platforms have also been used to live stream, and publish the findings across its followers and viewers. Below are some of the links of publications made as of 14th February 2021 on the 4th Assurance Report, and the Fair Business practices agenda;
