Government urged to rescind ban on Mawio The government has been urged to rescind the two-year ban it has imposed on Mawio newspaper as the order contravenes the country’s constitution and the Media Services Act of 2016 which basically does not empower the minister for information to mete out such punishment.

ejat2012postmortemThe Organising Committee of the Excellence in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT) has resolved to take steps to attract more entries for the competition.

The decision to entice more media practitioners to partake in the competition in which journalists are awarded trophies, prizes and certificates each year was reached during an evaluation meeting on the performance of the EJAT 2012 held at the offices of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) on April 24, 2013. The gala Night of EJAT 2012 was held on April 5, this year and was graced by the First Vice President of Zanzibar, Seif Sharrif Hamad who represented the Zanzibar President Dr. Ali Mohammed Shein who was the official guest.

The Organising Committee meeting presided by the Executive Secretary of the MCT, Kajubi Mukajanga, picked a five-member team that will visit newsrooms of media outlets to promote EJAT and get feed-back on how best to run the competition. Mukajanga said members of the team should be conversant on all issues concerning EJAT and should have an open mind to receive new ideas.

The team could make the visits before the upcoming MCT and Editors’ Consultative Summit scheduled to be held later in May, 2013. Team members are Razia Mawanga, Perege Gumbo, Lucas Alfred, Chrysostom Rweyemamu and Alakok Mayombo. The meeting generally agreed that this year’s event went on well except some few lapses such as inaudible sound system. Reacting to some complaints raised after the event, Mukajanga said that it was obvious that execution of an event of such magnitude would always attract criticisms.

He said the organizers of EJAT should be focused and be guided by the event’s parameters pointing out that the event’s categories could not be arranged to fit people. Responding to a claim made by one winner of the event who is reported to have complained in the social media that, he should have been the overall winner, Mukajanga said that EJAT has its criteria and the decisions are reached by a panel of judges with impeccable qualities. Even the organizing committee, he said, cannot order the judges to make decisions as it wishes. Contrary to the perception of few disgruntled elements, Mukajanga said   EJAT’s popularity is rising attracting the participation of more media practitioners and the number sponsors is on the increase.
