President Suhulu has today breathed a new air in the freedom of the media in Tanzania which has for long been perceived to be gagged by the state. In recent years several media houses have been shut down on grounds that they went against the regulator. A case in point is when Diamond Platnumz owned media house Wasafi TV was banned from airing for weeks.
Today the president has ordered that all media stations be allowed to carry on their mandates and any outlet that has been closed down be opened with immediate effect. She said this is to facilitate the key agendas of the media which is to inform, educate and entertain.
She however revealed that the station will be allowed to operate under strict adherence to the laid down rule and regulations that govern the media industry. She warned that any outlet that will go against these freedom will be dealt with in accordance to the law.
