An indefinite ban placed a popular Kiswahili investigative weekly- Mwanahalisi -has been lifted by the High Court.

The paper was banned in July 2012 for what the government alleged it was threatening national security.

Delivering judgment on the case on September 4, 2015, Justice Salvatory Bongole, that the High Court was satisfied that in banning the newspaper, the Minister responsible for Information, Dr. Fenella Mukangara had breached procedures as the newspaper was not given the right to be heard before it was banned.

Responding to the court decision, the counsel for Mwanahalisi, Rugemeleza Nshala said it is a great achievement not only for us but all those who are advocating press freedom. He said the decision means that the newspaper can resume publication.

Justice has been done and Mwanahalisi has been granted all its prayers in the case, said the paper’s editor, Jabir Idris.

The banning of the newspaper was roundly condemned by media stakeholders both locally and internationally, accusing the government of gagging the press.

The Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) was among institutions which spearheaded efforts to rescind the ban.

After the banning the production of the newspaper went on-line and another paper Mawio was introduced to fill-in the vacuum left by Mwanahalisi.

It has been a common practice for the government to ban media outlets whenever it feels so especially by using obnoxious and toxic legislation including the infamous 1976 Newspaper Act which gives the minister for information powers to shut down newspapers.
