Governments should come up with punitive measures for crimes against journalists

The event, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of the United Nations Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity, was jointly organised by MISA, UNESCO, the Government of Zimbabwe (Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services), Media Monitors and the International Media Support (IMS).

Holding Journalists by Kabwata Police a concern

While MISA Zambia commends the Zambia Police for not placing any of the journalists in Police cells but only took time to establish who they were and later released them, we note with concern that the action by Zambia Police derailed the journalists from carrying out their dutiful mandate of providing timely information to the public.
