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.

Over fifty journalism tutors are attending four- day training on the application of the standardised competence based journalism training curriculum prepared by the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) in

collaboration with the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE).

Opening the training in Morogoro on September 24, 2013, the Executive Secretary of MCT, Kajubi Mukajanga urged the tutors to fully grasp the new curriculum which is geared at providing training for three levels – basic certificate, advanced certificate and ordinary diploma.

He said if the tutors fully grasped the curriculum, their institutions will not only produce a well prepared cadre of journalists, but would be exemplary in the region.

As competence based, the thrust of this curriculum is to produce competent   graduates ready for working in media outlets, Mukajanga said.

The MCT chief also underscored the importance of the standardised curriculum in the country emphasising that it would strengthen and improve journalism training.

He said the Council will periodically review the curriculum with the view to improve it and those stakeholders and tutors would be involved in the process.

The Regulations and Standards Manager of the Council, Pili Mtambalike, said the Council had conducted a lengthy research before preparing the curriculum.

It was established in the research that there was yawning discrepancies and gaps in journalism training conducted by the various schools of journalism as each had its own mode of teaching, she added.

She said the Council had engaged all stakeholders and sought their views at all stages on how to improve journalism training.

The current training of tutors on the new curriculum is conducted at the Muslim University in Morogoro and is facilitated by trainers from NACTE.
