Journalists cautioned against inciting violence

0

Sports journalists in Malawi have been urged to be responsible and avoid focusing on issues that incite violence when there are better things to report on. The observation was made by facilitator Steve Liwewe Banda in Lilongwe during a daylong sports reporting workshop.

Banda, a veteran sports journalist himself, observed that it does not give sense to give perpetrators of violence publicity. He said: “Honestly for the good of the nation, we don’t have to report everything that meets the eye”.

Super League of Malawi (SULOM) Legal Adviser, Captain Gilbert Mitawa, thanked Sports Writers Association of Malawi (SWAM) for organising the training.

The occasion also saw the Association launch a Sports writers’ Code of Conduct and also a platform for a post-mortem of the TNM Super League first round. The TNM second round is about to start. Big Bullets is leading the first round with un beaten record.

SWAM Board chairperson, Gracian Tukula, lamented that it was disheartening to note that professional values were eroded, but thanked SULOM for giving a ray of hope through the training.
