    Its a lot of 'classified' information. Apparently, the government wanted to come up with a bad media law a year or so ago therefore the right to information activists advocated against it. The government went back to the drawing table. And the activists also drafted 2 bills - one for media services and another one for access to information - and submitted them to the government. I guess the one the government is talking about is the latter but I am not sure if it has not departed from the activists' version. Both versions are in the Media Council of Tanzania's (MCT) website and they also give a background of the provisions of the law that are not pro-information e.g. those in the Newspapers Act of 1976 which was used to ban Mwanahalisi! For more information check out MCT's websites at Media Council of Tanzania - Home.

    This has potential to be very powerful in the fight against corruption if done properly.

    However knowing our government i am not holding my breath.
