The Deputy Head of Mission at the German Embassy in Tanzania, John Reyes   and officials of the Media

Council of Tanzania led by the Regulation and Standards Manager, Pili Mtambalike on December 2, 2014 exchanged views on the media landscape in the country.

During the discussion the envoy accompanied by the embassy’s Legal Advisor, Jana Hoezel and Press Information Officer, John Merikion, expressed appreciation on the vibrancy of the media in the country despite challenges.

At one point he inquired if there was a system of censorship whereby stories can be checked and altered by the authorities before publication.

Mtambalike told the envoy that the media enjoys limited freedom as there are about 17 laws which in one way or another impinge on press freedom.

She said, media is however happy that the recent approved constitution reforms which are subject of a referendum next year accommodate pertinent articles on freedom of expression, right to information and press freedom.

She added that we are still faced with archaic and obnoxious legislations as the newspaper act used to banning production of newspapers.

“We are pressing for this and other such laws to be repealed”, she said...

On cooperation, the German envoy expressed readiness to support local journalists through training and exchange visits.

The MCT officials who participated in the discussion include the Ethics and Arbitration Manager, Allan Lawa, Programmes officers Regulation and Standards, Alakok Mayombo and Paul Mallimbo and Editor of the Council’s publications, Hamis Mzee.
