A website that is critical of the government suddenly became inaccessible to users in Uganda just before the election. The website radiokatwe.com is hosted in the U.S. First, the ruling Party, contacted the U.S. based hosting company and asked them to block access to the site and then contacted the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC).
“Serious concerns have been raised in respect of the operations of the website identified by IP address 184.108.40.206. Due to the gravity of the concerns, this is to request you that, with immediate effect, you temporarily prohibit access to this address until further notice.”
657 completely unrelated websites are hosted on the same IP address, so by blocking radiokatwe.com by IP address all these are also blocked.
