The Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) has praised the Zanzibar government for being proactive in the drive for the enactment and promotion of positive and friendly media legislations.

Speaking to the Zanzibar Minister for Information, Culture, Tourism and Sports, Said Ali Mbarouk in Zanzibar on September 11, 2013 Mukajanga expressed hope that Zanzibar will be the first country in the East African region to enact new media legislations.

 Mukajanga leading a four member delegation of the Council told Minister Mbarouk of the MCT’s readiness to cooperate and provide the Isles government with the requisite professional and technical support for the speedy realization of the information law which would be exemplary.

 The Council is ready to work closely with the Zanzibar government, he emphasised.

 He cited technical and professional training which the Council has been providing with the goal of improving and beefing up the performance of the Isles’ media outlets.

 While praising the Council for its contribution in promoting professionalism, Minister Mbarouk strongly discouraged partisanship which would promote hatred and endanger unity, peace and stability in the country.

 He asked it to vehemently condemn such tendencies.

“Your pens and microphones should be used to promote solidarity especially here in Zanzibar during this time of the government of national unity. The Council should not hesitate to condemn negative trends”, he pointed out.

 The Minister also elaborated efforts taken by the Zanzibar government for the realization of the new legislations on media.

 He said the Ministry is treading carefully to ensure that it collects views from a wide range of media stakeholders.

‘The process of collecting views has started and in the context of the new legislation, the government would cooperate with the Council to accommodate views from many stakeholders.

 Other members of the MCT delegation were the manager of Zanzibar Office of MCT, Suleiman Seif Omar, the Council’s Monitoring Officer Gesturd Haule and Shifaa Said Hassan, Programmes officer at the Zanzibar office.

 Mukajanga who visited a number of Media outlets in Zanzibar, is also expected to visit Pemba.
