largest newspaper, international mail service, telecommunications system, Munno, Ugandans

In the 1990s Uganda’s domestic and international mail service expanded significantly. The telecommunications system also grew, but in 2000 there were only 2.7 telephone lines for every 1,000 Ugandans. The largest newspaper is the government-owned, English-language daily, The New Vision, founded in 1986. The Monitor, an English-language privately-owned daily established in 1992, has a circulation nearly as large. Munno, which began publishing in 1911, is the main Luganda-language daily. All the main newspapers are published in Kampala. The government radio station, which broadcasts in 22 languages, was founded in 1954. In the 1990s a number of private radio stations were established in the capital and in other cities, but only the government station reaches the entire country. The state television station, which began broadcasting in 1963, only reaches to Kampala and the suburbs.
