mshibA judge in Zanzibar has sounded a strong warning to the media against publicizing hate speech.

Justice Bakari Mshibe said during a breakfast talk organized by the Zanzibar Office of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) on August 16, 2013 that of late there has been indiscriminate use of hate speech in the media.

Justice Mshibe who is the Chairperson of the Zanzibar Law Review Commission warned that the media should always be careful as hate speech would impact negatively on the society as they trigger instability by eroding social cohesion, peace, tranquility and thereby disrupting development in general.

He cited the Rwandan genocide where thousands of Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed following a concerted campaign of hate speech.

The media, he advised should avoid to be used by politicians to further their selfish interests.

The propagation of hate speech which is gaining currency in some media outlets in the Isles must be fiercely rejected, Justice Mshibe counseled and asked journalists not to be swayed and instead build strong solidarity in fighting it.

Justice Mshibe's concern on hate speech was shared by most of the journalists and media stakeholders who attended the breakfast talk with the Coordinator of the Tanzania Media Women Association (TAMWA) office in Zanzibar, Mzuri Issa reminding journalists of their outstanding and noble role in the society.

She appealed to journalist to articulate, evaluate, dissect careful and weigh the impact of their reports to society and not act as parrots reporting and relaying everything.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure
of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
