Media stakeholders met under the umbrella of the Coalition for Right to Information (CORI) on January 15, 2016 and discussed latest developments on the proposed Media services Bill.

The meeting held under the CORI chairperson, Kajubi Mukajanga who is also the Executive Secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT), welcomed the government’s recent initiatives to contact media stakeholders on the way forward in the process which would lead to the enactment of the Media Services legislation.

The new Minister for Information, Nape Nnauye had asked members of the Tanzania Editors Forum (TEF) to present proposals on the bill.

The CORI meeting held at the MCT offices noted that the initiative and the new spirit of the government was a positive gesture in the process of getting the desired legislation.

CORI members who include TEF members pledged to work closely and cooperate with the government to ensure the attainment of the new law.

The process was stuck and the bill could not be tabled in the last session of the National Assembly, as stakeholders were not involved in the process.

The Agenda for the CORI meeting was to strategize way forward on Media Services Bill and Access to to Information Bills.

Whereas the Media Services Bill is handled by the Information Ministry, the Access to Information Bill is handled by the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Ministry.

As for the Access to Information Bill, the stakeholders resolved to contact the relevant minister on the way forward.

Stakeholders who met under the umbrella of CORI were Sikika, Tanzania Editors Forum, Tanganyika Law society, MISATan, Jamii Forums Media, Clouds Media and MCT.
