Govt turns-away foreign journalists-Dora Siliya

Government has denied entry to dozens of journalist from South Africa, Ghana and Cape Verde.

An opposition leader from Ghana was also denied entry to the country.

The group was part of the international guests invited to witness and cover the launch of the Socialist Party.

Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services and Chief Government Spokesperson, Dora Siliya announced that government did this to “preserve peace”!
She claimed that the foreign journalists failed to get prior accreditation while the opposition leader from Ghana was undesirable!

The Socialist Party was launched with the unveiling of former Editor of the defunct Post Newspaper Fred Mmembe as 2021 Presidential Candidate.
