slide1The Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) has strongly criticized the decision to stop live coverage by television parliamentary proceedings.

 Responding to a question during a press conference held at MCT offices on February 15, 2013, the Council’s Executive Secretary Kajubi Mukajanga said the decision is unacceptable and is retrogressive. He said that Tanzanians have been closely following their representatives in parliament through live broadcasts and to stop them now is  taking several steps backwards.

Mukajanga was reacting to the proposed move to stop live broadcasts and to allow recorded broadcasts after they are checked and edited by  parliamentary authorities announced by the Secretary of the National Assembly, Dr. Thomas Kashililah earlier this week.

Mukajanga said it is not acceptable in the journalism profession for news sources to be editors adding that if that is allowed it is amounts to killing the profession.

That system can only in public relations and can flourish in proganda.

“We find it difficult to imagine parliamentary bureaucrats becoming editors”, a visibly shaken Mukajanga said.

Already, he said, that there are allegations of one side being favoured in Parliament. Whether that is true or false does not matter but the allegations are there, Mukanga added.

In such situation, he said, to allow bureaucrats to be editors and select what to show or broadcast to the public would not be fair.

“That decision is to take us back as a nation”, Mukajanga said  and emphasized that it is not acceptable.

“We shall mobilize all efforts to oppose it through and through”, he declared.
