    The Zanzibar government has threatened to take legal action against the editorial board of the banned Dira weekly newspaper if it will attempt to publish the paper on the Internet. Zanzibar Information Services Director Enzi Talib told a news conference here, in response to the Dira Managing Editor, Ali Nabwa´s announcement that the paper would continue to come out through the Internet.

    “To continue publishing the paper in anyway is contrary to the government´s order to ban it throughout the United Republic of Tanzania because of failure to adhere to ethics of journalism,’ Talib said. He said the newspaper was registered in Zanzibar, and the Isles form part of the Union. The ban applies to the Mainland as well, because of security reasons.

    Talib advised the Dira editorial board to take the matter to court if they felt aggrieved by the government´s decision on the ban. The director alleged that investigation indicated that the paper was established in order to disrupt the peaceful political climate on the Isles ahead of the 2005 elections. “The government has banned the paper because of security reasons. There is ample evidence to prove that,’ he said. Nabwa was earlier quoted as saying that Zanzibar residents would continue reading Dira on the Internet as the paper strives to seek redress in court.

    But the government alleges that Dira distorts the Zanzibar Revolution history, the Union, as well as creating classes of ‘Islanders´ and ‘Mainlanders´. The Dira editorial board accuses the government of not being tolerant to views that criticise it for failure to adhere to democratic principles and the rule of law.
