Framing the Presence of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces in South Sudan and the Prospects of Peace Journalism

The School of Liberal and Performing Arts, College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS), Makerere University, Kampala Uganda

This study examines how a South Sudan based newspaper-Juba Monitor framed the presence of the UPDF in Juba in their effort to rescue and restore peace in South Sudan. Using qualitative content analysis and interviews, the study concludes that the reporting of warfare was done by proxy, as a means to escape hostility and violence directed towards the media and also as a tactic the media house employed to stay in business. An evaluation of the coverage shows a need for availing necessary information to the media during conflicts.
