The Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) held its 18th National General Convention on August 31, in Dar es Salaam with members urged to provide more financial support to the Council to ensure sustainability of the Council.

Speaking at the Convention, the MCT President Justice (rtd) Thomas Mihayoappealed to members to pay their annual subscriptions and take an active role in the Council’s sustainability such as the construction of the MCT offices and economic efforts at Bagamoyo.

He said that the Council is still reliant to donor funding and this has posed a big challenge for its sustainability following reduction of funding levels by development partners and hence affecting activities which are of importance to the Council and the members its serves.

“Gone are the days of thinking that the donors will always fund for our needs and media industry in general, we need to prepare psychological by being self reliant so as the day donors will cut off their support we can stand on our own,” Justice Mihayo said.

Among the substantive issues discussed at the NGC, was the annual reports for 2014 and 2015, external auditors report, review of the MCT Constitution 1995, review of the Codes of Ethics for Media Professionals in Tanzania, and an upward review of Annual Membership subscription rates.

Speaking at the event, MCT Executive Secretary, Kajubi Mukajanga urged the media practitioners to abide to professionalism and code of ethical conduct as it was their only shield in the current environment where media outlets are being shut down regularly.

Mukajanga pointed out: “This year alone three newspapers and two radio stations have been banned or suspended. Bad laws a still in existence and unfortunately the government has no qualms in using them.”

Mukajanga said it was expected that the Government would see the media as allies in its fight against corruption, waste and other ills in the society but instead it has been shutting them down.

He said the government is deeply concerned about this trend and added that the MCT was currently following up on the closure of Magic FM and Radio 5 by analyzing the contents that made these radio stations to be closed before asking to meet the Minister Nape Nnauye.
