Southern Africa: A year of persistent attacks on media threaten press freedom
Persistent attacks against journalists and media owners are threatening press freedom and the growth of independent media across Southern Africa, Amnesty International said today to mark World Press Freedom Day. “From Angola to Zambia, we have seen disturbingly brazen attacks on press freedom which have a chilling effect on those working in the media. Across the region, journalists have been targeted simply for exposing the truth,” said Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for Southern Africa.
