Ministry of Information and Media Permanent Secretary Thabo Kawana says the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) layman’s bill being compiled by the technical working group is not targeting certain individuals.

Mr Kawana encouraged those broadcasting online to familiarise themselves with the law and not feel targeted after Government recommended that IBA should start regulating podcasts.

He said when IBA layman’s bill is enacted into law, the authority will license all persons that want to use the Internet to broadcast content.

“The ministry is not concerned about podcasts,” Mr Kawama said in a response to a press query.

“No-one is being targeted as long as they understand what a podcast is and they do not offend other laws such as the Penal Code Act and the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act or any other written law that prohibits vices like seditious acts, hate speech, defamation of character and other vices that the IBA guards against through enforcing broadcasting guidelines.”

Mr Kawama said hitherto, there has been no legal framework to allow IBA to give a licence to a person that wishes to broadcast via Internet.

He said it is in this context that Government wants to be regulating online broadcasting

CHIEF Government Spokesperson, Cornelius Mweetwa, has applauded Catholic Priest, Chewe Mukosa, of Ndola Diocese for speaking out on national matters that require government attention.

Speaking when he addressed a Media Briefing in Choma, Wednesday evening, Mweetwa said government will not curtail the voice of the church even on matters not agreeable, as that is what the freedom of speech and expression.

He stated that going forward, government will find better ways of approaching differences with the Clergy, unlike summoning them for possible rebuke in public domain.

Mweetwa also reminded Law Enforcement Wings on the need to adhere to the Presidential directive of thoroughly investigating an issue before rushing to act.

Father Chewe Mukosa of Ndola was reportedly served with a call out by two plain Clothed Police Officers to appear for questioning early this week.

The Summon which was delivered to his Parish House in absentia while he was out on outstation duty, follows Mukosa’s church homily in which he pointed out various economic and social challenges his parishioners are going through.

The Call out has since been withdrawn by Police.
