‘Media be objective as the country heads towards polls’

LATEST 1

By Zumani Katasefa A catholic priest has called on the media to be objective in their reporting as the country heads towards polls. Fr Lewis Mutachila said media houses should be cautious as the report issues and follow the media conduct. He said journalists should focus on reporting issues than concentrating on issues of character assassinations. Fr Mutachila said there is need to high light issues such as unemployment, especially among the youths. “As journalists you must be cautious as you report some of these issues, some people take everything they read on listen to on either radio or television as gospel truth,” he said. And some residents have called on ZNBC management to stop airing free journalist Chanda Chimba’s programme’Stand up Zambia’ on ZNBC TV. Luka Mutale said the programme has the potential to bring choas in the country, if not immediately stopped. ENDS

    RB is using the Middle-income report to spread propaganda… Go to: http://data.worldbank.org/data-catalog and download actual data set in the evaluation the full data set evaluated is from 1961 thru 2008 and that was the year LPM died. So RB is being dishonest as always and taking credit for other people’s work…. Zambians do your homework and look at the data set yourself.
