THE Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) in Zambia has learnt with deep sorrow about the death of ZambianÂ President Michael Sata at the time the country is celebrating its independence golden jubilee.
MISA Zambia will remember President Sata for his contribution towards media freedom, which included making the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) Act of 2002 operational and allowing the Zambian media to self-regulate through the Zambian Media Council (ZAMEC).
We convey our deepest condolences to the Presidentâ€™s family as we mourn with the people of Zambia and pray for Godâ€™s comfort during this sad period.
May the soul of our departed President rest in peace.
Chairperson â€“ MISA Zambia.
