Msokabreakfasttalk2013The safety and security of Journalists in Tanzania was extensively discussed during a breakfast meeting organized by the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT).

 

The Executive Director of the Tanzania Media Women’s Association (TAMWA) Valery Msoka appealed to media to come together to promote peace and tranquility in the country as they have a crucial role to play.

In addition she pointed out that it is imperative for journalists to prepare and train how to cover potential explosive situations – demonstrations and even elections.

She was making a presentation entitled “Who is my enemy” at the breakfast meeting held on March 27, 2013 whose theme was “The safest and security of journalists in Tanzania”.

A prominent law professor and chairperson of the Think Tank on Freedom of Expression and Media Issues of MCT, Issa Shivji was of the opinion that the violence against journalists was a tip of the iceberg.

He said that there is violence against the citizen which is building up with impunity in the country.

“You don’t see a headline when a “bodaboda” motorcyclist is killed or when a peasant is killed in a land dispute in the Police Field Force Unit is protecting an investor”, he asserted.

Pointing that every life is precious, Prof. Shivji stressed that “ we must strive to stop the impunity”.

“One way of taking people to task is constant exposure - and that is where the media comes in”, he said.

A season journalist, Mboneko Munyanga,  pointed out that there is a need to have a strong professional union which will offer coordinated responsive to brutality against journalists.

Moderating during the meeting, a professor from Maryland university in the USA, Nicholls Boas stated that journalist become enemies of those who do not want to hear the truth.

He called for concerted efforts by journalists to come up with tangible solution to ensure they work without fear.

The issue of safety and security of journalists was discussed following a spate of attacks against journalists and the very recent incident is the attack unleashed by unknown assailants on the chairperson of the Tanzania Editors Forum (TEF), Absalom Kibanda who is now recuperating in a hospital in South Africa.
