Stop attacking the media, Malawi Govt. told

36

Political commentators in the country have reiterated the need for government to stop attacking the media and recognise the good work the journalists does.

The current Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government has been attacking the media saying some media houses are aimed at tarnishing the image of government.

But one of the political commentators in the country Boniface Dulani said the media is the one which bridges the gap between government and people.

Boniface Dulani : The approach towards the media needs to change.

Dulani who is based at Chancellor College said the media informs people of what is happening in the country which is one of the pillars of democracy.

“The media is there to hold the government accountable hence the need for government to stop attacking the media because they are the messengers for the country,” Dulani said.

He added that government should focus on ending the problems facing the country rather than fighting media houses as this will not help the country.

According to Dulani, if government is to tolerate the media and continue solving problems in the country it will show that there is good governance.

In October, government attacked the media for reporting that President Peter Mutharika was ill after he extended his stay in the United States of America where he went to attend the United Nations General Assembly.

Last month, DPP officials also took a swipe at the media saying they were publishing lies about Mutharika and criticising his policies.

  4. THE DPP GOVERNMENT HAS A GENUINE JUSTIFIABLE RIGHTEOUS ANGER. OUR TRADITIONAL NATIVE JOURNALISTS must appreciate reality. TRUTH must not be flattened to suit their intended appeasement .THE MAJORITY OF MISINFORMED MEDIA DO THINGS THEY SHOULDN’T BE DOING WITH IMPUNITY,THEY NEED MANDATORY MORAL DISCIPLINE.. THEY SHOULD AVOID BEING USED BY FRUSTRATED POLITICAL REJECTS THROUGH SPREADING OF UNFOUNDED ROMOURS,HATE AND CONFUSION ABOUT LEGITIMATE WINNERS (achievers); IN ANTICIPATION FOR PROMISORY POSITIONS IN IMMAGINALLY WISHFUL, ACCIDENTAL ADMINISTRATIONS. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN…(infinitum) …,stop being puppets of “political puppets”.

  5. If journalists are to be professionals,let the politicians also be professionals by being open on all issues affecting the citizens. May be that is why the write like that to bring out the truth after the comment from those in power of governing. Kubisa chilichose chikupweteketsa osalakwa.
