The Executive Secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania, Kajubi Mukajanga, has been nominated member of the Constituent Assembly.

He was among the 201 members of the Constituent Assembly named by the government on February 7, 2014

Mukajanga had chaired the Constitutional Council for the media which organized meetings throughout the country and collected views from representative of media who dissected and deliberated on the first draft of the constitution prepared by the Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) chaired by former Prime minister, Justice Joseph Warioba.

After preparing the refined proposals for the media, he led the team which presented the proposals to the Commission.

The final draft of the constitution which was presented to President Jakaya Kikwete by the chairperson of the Constitution review commission, Justice Warioba on December 31, 2013 has accommodated most of the proposals from the media.

The proposals seek constitutional guarantees on access of information, rights, freedom and legal protection of the media.

Mukajanga is also chairing the Coalition of Right to Information which is pressing for the enactment of the right to information and media services legislations.

The Constituent assembly is expected to start its sittings later this month to deliberate on the draft constitution till April, this year.

The final decision on the constitution will be made by the public through a referendum to be held later.
