The Executive Secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) Kajubi Mukajanga has shared views on various issues including the coverage of the 2015 elections with the Netherlands Ambassador to Tanzania, Jaap Frederiks.

In the discussions held at the Netherlands embassy on August 24, 2015, Mukajanga briefed the ambassador on the role played by the media pointing out that there is no sin for media or journalists to support a candidate of their choice, but added the media has to be fair and should not tell lies.

Mukajanga who was invited by Ambassador Frederiks to the embassy for discussions on how media report the elections and role of the Council, said that MCT is always communicating with editors on profession matters.

The ambassador also shared with the MCT Executive Secretary experience of election reportage in the Netherlands.

On the Council’s position on the coverage of presidential candidates whereby only two of the eight contenders are given prominence by the mainland media, Mukajanga said that is ethically wrong as the coverage should be equitable.

The ambassador had cited Mtanzania which prominently cover candidate Edward Lowassa of the Chadema representing four parties which have united behind him and and Uhuru newspaper which only cover the candidate of the ruling party – CCM, Dr. John Magufuli.

The ambassador also spoke of Zanzibar not getting a fair share in coverage in the mainland based media and he urged MCT to do something on it.

The Ambassador expressed the hope that the 2015 elections would proceed smoothly and that he would be very happy if they end without any chaos and the candidate who got majority of the votes is declared winner.

On the newly passed legislations – on cyber crime and statistic, Ambassador Frederiks wanted to know if they have started showing impact to people’s lives, Mukajanga said they only be used when it is convenient. “When things go bad, there may be temptations to apply them,” he said.

The MCT Executive Secretary Mukajanga was accompanied at the meeting by the Programme Officer, Regulation and Media Accountability, Paul Mallimbo.
