Editors have been encouraged to develop professional codes of ethics, style books and engage ombudsmen for their media outlets.

Facilitating during a one day workshop on peer oversight initiatives and self regulation for editors, the Executive Secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania, Kajubi Mukajanga, also emphasised mentoring of young journalists.

“ Journalists are not moulded in classrooms but in newsrooms’, Mukajanga told about 20 editors who attended the workshop held at the boardroom of MCT on April 30,2012.

He expressed the Council’s readiness to support the mentoring programmes for media outlets. As for the codes of conduct , Mukajanga said that it was imperative for each media house to have its codes to cover the broad aspect of a particular media outlet.

He clarified that the codes prepared by the Council are general for the industry, but the codes prepared by a media outlet would be broader to cover even dress codes. These codes will be unique to each media outlet.

As for ombudsmen , Mukajanga said that it is pertinent that each media house to have them as facilitators of self regulation and handle complaints raised against the outlets. .

During the workshop, the only known ombudsman operating in the media in the country at present, Balinangwe Mwambungu of New Habari - publishers of Mtanzania, Rai and The African newspapers, shared his experience with the editors.
