Media stakeholders have resolved not to give press-coverage for an indefinite period to the Minister for Information, Youth, Culture and Sports Dr. Fennela Mukangana and the Director of the Tanzania information Services (Maelezo) Assah Mwambene

following the banning by the government of Kiswahili newspapers - Mtanzania, Mwananchi and Mwanahalisi.

The decision to blackout the two was reached at a meeting held in Dar es Salaam on October 9, 2013.

While Mwananchi and Mtanzania were banned recently for publishing articles which the government officials deemed as seditious, Mwanahalisi was banned for unspecified period on July 30 2012 apparently for the same reasons..

Mwananchi has been closed for two weeks while Mtanzania for 90 days. Ironically the papers were banned when the world was marking the Right to Know Day on September 28, 2013.

The media stakeholders expressed dismay for the government’s insensitivity to appeals by media owners, editors and other stakeholders to unban the three publications.

They also expressed disappointment over the government’s failure to rescind the abhorrent Newspaper Act of 1976 despite repeated calls by media stakeholders.

They singled out the Minister Dr. Mukangara and Maelezo Director Mwambene and blamed them for banning the newspapers without affording them the right of reply and making misleading statements to the public.

The media stakeholders who reached the decision to blackout both the Minister and the Director of Information included the Media Owners Association (MOAT), Tanzania Editors Forum (TEF), Media Institute of Southern Africa Tanzania Chapter (MISATan, Media Council of Tanzania and Union of Tanzania Press Club (UTPC).
