ZAMBIAN INFORMATION MINISTER SAYS GOVT WILL MAKE THE MEDIA THRIVE

LUSAKA– Zabia’s Minister of Information, Kampamba Mulenga, has reiterated the government’s commitment to creating an enabling environment for the media in the country to thrive.

Stressing that the government wants to ensure that citizens have access to quality information, she adds that citizens can only participate in national development once they are empowered with information.

Plurality of voices and a free media are a key component of good governance and democracy, she said here Monday when she presented a house and a Nissan vehicle to the two lucky winners of a local competition.

Mulenga has assured players in the Zambian broadcasting industry that the government would continue putting measures in place to facilitate the creation of a favourable business environment.
