Mozambique - Public Broadcasting In Africa (AfriMAP 2010)

Published by OSFJournalism
Tomas Vieira Mario, a Mozambican media and freedom of expression lawyer and a long-time media activist, explores the country’s media landscape, where an array of laws regarding ‘national security’, introduced during the 16-year civil war, are still on the statute books. He argues that because the culture of secrecy in the public administration is still very strong, the tendencies for impunity, corruption, and lack of transparency could threaten rights of citizens as guaranteed by the constitution. Other aspects of media reform are explored in this publication as well as programming, funding, digital migration, and legislation of media. The report has put forward 43 recommendations aimed at improving public broadcasting and press freedom in Mozambique.
