Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Zambia Chapter has challenged Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkandu Luo to clearly state which media institutions are promoting anarchy in the country.
Professor Luo during the commemoration of International Museum Day over the weekend accused the media of fueling messages that are promoting anarchy in the country.
But MISA Zambia Chapter Chairperson Hellen Mwale has told QFM News in a telephone interview that Professor Luo should be specific as to which media houses are promoting anarchy in the country.
Ms. Mwale says government should appreciate the work of journalists in the country because they are trying to be professional and objective in their reporting.
She says if Professor Luo is referring to online media, she should be mindful that social media is here to stay in Zambia.
Ms. Mwale says it is Ministers like Professor Luo who are making the work of journalists very difficult because they are failing to give journalists adequate information for their stories.
