We object: A disgrace to our hard-earned democracy founded on genuine freedoms

Jameson Maluleke - 2010-08-27

The proposed Media Tribunal is not only an insult to our Constitution, but also a disgrace to our hard-earned democracy founded on genuine freedoms. It is absurd for our short-sighted leaders to want to silence the media, thus rendering our renowned Constitution in a useless piece of paper.

As the voice, eyes and ears of the nation, the media are there as a gauge and to warn the people whenever our national leaders start worshipping despotism. Let all living organisms stand up and trample upon this media tribunal madness.
