Uhuru Publications Limited

UHURU Publications Limited (UPL) ni miongoni mwa wachapishaji wakubwa nchini Tanzania. Ilianzishwa na Chama cha Mapinduzi mwanzoni mwa mwaka 1990. Kampuni hii inachapisha gazeti la kila siku la UHURU na magazeti mengine mawili ya kila wiki ya MZALENDU na BURDANI ambalo ni la kujiburudisha.

Historia ya UHURU Publications Limited inaanzia Aprili 1962 wakati Tanganyika African National Union (TANU) ilipoanzisha Mwananchi Printing and Publishing Company ambayo Bodi ya Wakurugenzi wake ilijazwa na Mawaziri, wanasiasa na makada wa chama. Mwaka 1966, baada ya mapendekezo ya serikali, TANU ilikubali kuigawa Mwananchi Printing and Publishing Company kuwa kampuni mbili. Uchapishaji ulikuwa kwenye kampuni mpya iliyoundwa ya National Printing Company (Kiwanda cha Taifa cha Uchapaji –KIUT) iliyokuwa chini ya National Development Corporation (NDC) wakati uchapishaji ulibakia kwenye kampuni iliyoundwa mpya ya Mwananchi Publishing Company (1966) Limited. Hata hivyo, Mwananchi Publishing Company (1966) Ltd ilibadilishwa jina na kuwa Shirika la Magazeti ya Chama ambalo mwanzoni mwa miaka ya 1990 lilibadilishwa tena na kuitwa UHURU Publications Limited. UPL ilinunua mashine ya uchapaji ya web-offset mwaka 1995 na kuiendesha chini ya kampuni tanzu ya Modern Newspapers Printers, na kuifanya UHURU kuwa gazeti la kwanza la Kiswahili la nchini kuchapishwa kwa rangi kwenye mitambo yake.

Kutokana na makubaliano yaliyotokea mwaka 1966, Benjamin William Mkapa, aliyekuwa mhariri mtendaji wa TANU, iliyomiliki gaziti la The Nationalist baadaye alikuwa Rais wa awamu ya tatu wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, akawa mhariri mtendaji wa magazeti ya chama. Mhariri Mtendaji wa kwanza alikuwa Ronald Mwanjisi na kufuatiwa na Joel Mgogo.

Mhariri Mtendaji anateuliwa na Kamati Kuu ya CCM baada ya kupendekezwa na Bodi ya UPL. Kwa sasa UPL haina bodi baada ya wajumbe wao kujiuzulu Septemba 2016 baada ya ziara ya Mwenyekiti wa CCM na Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, Dr. John Pombe Magufuli, baada ya UPL na watumishi kumweleza kuhusu ubadhirifu na uongozi mbaya uliyopo UPL.
