Misa Malawi Chairperson Tereza Ndanga has commended Malawi President Dr Lazarus Chakwera for the press freedom that Malawi is enjoying in the country.
Speaking at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during a breakfast which the President hosted, Ndaga hailed the Malawi leader for demonstrating true statesmanship in as far as media independence is concerned.
Ndanga said during the time of his office, Chakwera has opened the doors of State House through periodic briefs.
She also gave praises to the President on his role towards operationalization of the Access to Information Bill, three months into office.
She said that purely demonstrated his trust and commitment to media freedoms.
The MISA chairperson said the President has demonstrated that media is indeed a partner to carry out messages on development of the country.
She also commended Chakwera for appointing professionals on his panel of press team saying that has helped in easy coordination.
“We can say that no any other administration has remained open towards the media as yours Sir,” said she.
Ndanga, however, complained to the president that there are some few government ministries, departments and agencies that are still closed.
The Misa Chair also requested that Ministry of Information should leave accreditation of Foreign journalists to the Media Council of Malawi arguing that it is sad that up to now Government continue to accredit the journalists.
