Tue, Jul 31st, 2012 | By Teonas Aswile The General Director of Mwana Halisi Newspaper, Said Kubenea has advised the government of Tanzania to demolish all laws which downtrodden the journalism professional in the country. Briefing journalists in the press conference he conducted today afternoon, Kubenea said for a long time the government has been using repressive laws which become barriers to the journalists who want to play well their role of informing and representing the public. "As it is directed by the Newspaper Act of 1976, the government is not obligated to tell you the reason for censorship…a letter from the registrar informed me that I have been stopped to publish my newspaper and I have to read Government Gazette No. 258 of 27[SUP]Th[/SUP]July, 2012." Kubenea said it's surprising to see the government does not work on the Media Stakeholders' proposal which wanted Tanzaniato have the law supporting freedom of information. "The government has taken from us and all citizens the freedom of getting information from effective medium." explained Said Kubenea looking disappointed. Also Kubenea said the action aims to kill the newspaper workers and all people who depend on Mwana Halisi to get their daily bread through publishing and selling it in streets. The General Director asked the government to reverse the decision announced and allow the weekly newspaper to continue with publications. Mwana Halisi newspaper published by Hali Halisi Publishers Ltd was banned yesterday by the Registrar of Tanzania accused of sedition.
