EU donates computers to the Observer Newspaper

One of Uganda’s most credible Newspapers the Observer has received a donation of 12 central processing units (CPUs) from the European Union (EU).

This donation follows the recent April 1 break-in, the second in less than six months.

The computers were delivered Saturday by the EU ambassador/head of delegation to Uganda, Kristian Schmidt, who also paid a courtesy visit to assess the situation after the break-ins.

Kristian said it was “important to note” that the two robberies at The Observer and others at the various NGOs had happened in the past two or so years hence the need to conclude investigations to get to the bottom of the attacks.

The Observer managing director James Tumusiime, said despite losing more than 30 computers in the two break-ins, with such “significant support”, the staff are more than determined to carry on doing what they know best.
