MISA Challenges National Assembly Ban

MISA challenges the alleged decision of the National Assembly to bar its members from covering the opening of the Fourth Session of the 11th National Assembly

The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Zambia, has challenged the alleged decision of the National Assembly to bar its members from covering the opening of the Fourth Session of the 11th National Assembly.

MISA described the decision as discriminatory and a violation of press freedom.

MISA board chairperson, Hellen Mwale, asked the Lusaka High Court to declare that the move by the National Assembly and Zambia News and Information Services to bar its members from entering the Parliament precincts to cover the event, on 19 September 2014, is discriminatory and contrary to Article 23 of the Constitution.
