ValerieThe Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) has embarked on the training of journalists in order to enable

them perform their duties effectively and safely in volatile situations.

Opening the first training of trainers at the Council’s Board Room in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday August 2, 2013, MCT Executive Secretary, Kajubi Mukajanga, said MCT has been compelled to devise a training manual for journalists following recent events that have resulted into violent clashes putting the lives of journalists at risk.

“Of late we have witnessed the use of unwarranted force by the police on journalists, violent clashes between farmers and pastoralists competing for land, civilians attacking security organs as well as the public taking the law into their own hands,” Mukajanga said.

He added: “We recognize that this is a community problem, but we also realize that journalists are at greater risk as they go about reporting these incidents.”

Mukajanga explained that MCT and media stakeholders discussed this matter after seeing increased violent incidents without state intervention to rectify the situation. He said due to this dangerous situation MCT has developed a training manual on reporting volatile situations to safeguard journalists.

The trainers who attended the two-day training on reporting volatile situation included Fili Karashani, Dr. Ayub Rioba, Hawra Shamte, Ndimara Tegambwage, Atilio Tagalile, Lilian Timbuka, Beda Msimbe, Kaanaeli Kaale and Joyce Bazira. The training session was conducted by Valerie Msoka and Anaclet Rwegayura, the authors of the training manual.

The trainers are expected to go to the regions next week to conduct training of journalists on reporting volatile situations.
