Media stakeholders in Zanzibar have finalized discussions on the proposed bill on a new media legislation for the Isles.

The stakeholders concluded the proposals on the much sought media legislation for the Isles during a meeting chaired by Justice Bakari Ali Mshibe held on February 13, 2014.

Issues deliberated during the one-day meeting whose objective was to improve the bill on media legislation for Zanzibar included editorial independence, protection of journalists and their qualifications.

Addressing the meeting, the Director of Zanzibar information Department (MAELEZO) Rafii Haji Makame underscored the importance of the new media legislation.

He said that following the growth and development of the media industry, a new legislation was pertinent.    

He said the proposed bill has been discussed at different levels from 2010 and it has now reached an important stage especially after the daunting task of collecting views from stakeholders’ and members of public carried out by Media Council of Tanzania.

“This is the final meeting of stakeholders after which the proposed bill will be deliberated at ministerial committee, Permanent Secretaries and the Revolutionary Council before being tabled to the House of Representative for enactment”, he said.

He cited the 1988 Newspaper Act as an obsolete piece of legislation which should be replaced with a timely and conducive legislation.

Earlier the chairperson of the meeting, Justice Mshibe emphasised that it was important to safeguard the rights of journalists by law which should also protect other people’s rights.

The meeting organized by the Zanzibar office of the Media Council of Tanzania, brought together 40 media stakeholders in the Isles.
