Top officials of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) engaged members of the Constituent Assembly in Dodoma on March 4, 2014 in discussions to harmonize issues related to articles 30 and 31 of the proposed new constitution.

The MCT team led by the Council’s Executive Secretary, Kajubi Mukajanga, engaged with the CA members during a working lunch at Bunge Building in Dodoma where the CA is holding its marathon meeting on the proposed constitution. Mukajanga is a member of the CA.

Acting Executive Secretary Pili Mtambalike who together with the other managers joined Mukajanga in Dodoma for the working lunch with a group of over 20 CA Members said that during the meeting the MCT team briefed the CA Members on the proposals put forward by media stakeholders for the first and second draft of the constitution.

They also shared views on the preference of the media stakeholders and how to improve the proposals.

However, concern was raised during the exchange of views between the two sides on the penchant for sensationalism by some section of the media.

The two articles 30 and 31 essentially provide for the rights of individuals for freedom of expression and right to seek , access , process and disseminate information and guarantees independence of media to access, to process and use the information they access.

Clause 3 of Article 31 provides that the government and its institutions and civil organisations and private individuals will have the responsibility to inform the public on the implementation of their activities.

Other members of the MCT team which engaged with the CA members were the Council’s Ethics and Arbitration Manager, Allan Lawa, Finance Manager, John Nguya and Human Resources Manager, Ziada Kilobo.
