MEDIA regulation has been a thorny issue in Zambia and the sticky point is on whether journalists should regulate themselves or submit to statutory regulation.
Journalists held a Media Regulation Insaka in May this year and categorically opted for statutory self-regulation.
According to the communique issued after the media regulation conference, a Technical Committee was tasked to liaise with Government and donors to make the statutory self-regulation happen.
By August, three months after the media conference, the committee was expected to give a report to another media conference, on progress made towards actualising the self-regulation model.
However, this has not taken place yet.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
