Former Luanshya Mayor Nathan Chanda writes..


When I think of the values of journalism, I think of trust, truth and integrity. I think of the countless, fearless individuals daring to question.

Daring to challenge power, risking their lives to document atrocities, corruption and crime, and to stand up against oppression.

Press Freedom Day highlights the fundamental principles of press freedom, which is observed annually on May 3. It gives us a chance to think about how important free media are to society.

The theme of World Press Freedom Day 2024 is “A Press for the Planet: Journalism in the Face of the Environmental Crisis”.

As friend of the media l appreciate and recognise importance of the fourth estate and l wish to take this opportunity to congratulate and wish our gallant men and Women who sometimes under difficult circumstances tirelessly and passionately make us get informed on the happenings around our communities, national and globally a happy Press Freedom Day.

Enjoy your day and God bless!

Nathan Chanda Bwalya
