JOURNALISTS MARK WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY

Written by on May 3, 2018

The Media Institute of Southern Africa is lobbying for the government to revise stringent media laws stifling press freedom.

Speaking to Yafm news on World Press Freedom Day, MISA chairperson Golden Maunganidze said journalists face harassment, threats and arbitrary arrests and restriction by laws such as POSA and AIPPA which restrict press freedom and are not aligned with the constitution.

This comes at a time when the government has not yet aligned media laws with the country’s new constitution which was adopted in 2013.
