An appeal has been made for journalists and broadcasters to judiciously use their positions adhere to professional ethics and avoid to propagate hate speech and inciting comments which may threaten peace and security in the country.

Veteran journalist and media trainer, Salim Said Salim noted that often broadcasters tend to be carried away by microphones and give provocative utterances which may stir crisis in the society.

“Journalists and broadcasters have a sterling responsibility and therefore this power should be wisely utilized to prop up solidarity and unity and should never be a recipe for promoting misunderstandings”, he stressed.

He was facilitating in four-day training for journalists and broadcasters of Chuchu FM in Zanzibar on January 28, 2014 which has been organized by the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT). The Training is on ethics and hate speech.

Salim claimed that specter of corruption was haunting journalists in the Isles which may seriously affect their professional efficiency and efficacy.  

”Corruption is an enemy of justice” Salim said and dissuaded the Zanzibari journalists from taking “envolopes” or corruption as an incentive for reporting.  “This”, he emphisised “is unacceptable.”

He insisted on adhering to code of ethics, confidence and valuing your work as the main pillar for success.

Earlier the manager of Chuchu FM Radio, Salma Aley, said the training will be the main focus for professional improvement at the Radio Station.

She thanked MCT for organizing the training which she said had come at the appropriate time as Radio station is in the process strengthening and improving its activities.

Similar training for Members of Pemba Press Club will start on January 29, 2014.

In its programme strategy covering 2012-2015 the MCT has been organizing training for journalists.
