kabalebreakfastThe media should take driver’s seat in the fight against corruption, a senior official with the Prevention and Combating Corruption Bureau (PCCB) said during a breakfast meeting organized by the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT).

John Kabale, Head of Coordination and Information at PCCB, told editors and senior journalists from various mass media organizations that media practitioners should take  bold action in the fight against corruption which he pointed is multifaceted.

He said the media is an important and effective tool in the fight against the chronic malaise with adverse effects to the society.

He told the invitees at the breakfast talk  held on  February 8,2013 and whose theme was - the role of media in the fight against graft- What it takes to have an anti-corruption Media in Tanzania”,  that the media should also strive to bind Tanzanians and mobilize them in the fight against the scourge.

For media owners, Kabale appealed to them to strengthen the capacity of the media practitioners working in their outlets through training in investigative journalism and other fields to enable them undertake their duties professionally.

“Investigative journalism should be encouraged to unearth and report corrupt elements without fear”, Kabale added.

Speaking during the meeting, the Executive Director of the Tanzania Media Fund (TMF), Ernest Sungura, urged journalists to be courageous in handling and following up stories on corruption and refuse to take corruption.

“Be bold and determined to expose corrupt practices”, Sungura emphasised whose Fund sponsors training on investigative reporting and provides financial support to  individual journalists and  media outlets.

Contributing in the discussion of the main theme, some journalists were cautious that fighting corruption depended largely on the whims and interests of media owners.

However, some speakers were of the opinion that journalists must dare and “come out of the box” if they really want the war against corruption to be successful.

“They should stop the mentality of “fearing” especially of media owners as media outlets are there for public good, a participant pointed out.

This was the first breakfast talk for this year and more are planned by MCT in the course of the year.
