Reacting to the Private media declaration, Minister of Gender Dr.Jean Kalilani said that the President is not in the wrong but the media.

“The private media cannot dictate terms to us on how we should go about government business.

“The President was only criticising the private media over the lies the media has been spreading. What is wrong in criticising them?

“They criticise government but when government does the same it is a problem, i cannot believe this crap,” she said.

Speaking in a similar fashion, director of press at state house, Bright Molande said the private media has cut business ties with the government.

“They are business ties between government and the media, but since they have resorted to giving us a total blackout interms of media coverage then it means our business ties are now nonexistence,” he said.

“As far as the President knows the media was not intimidated in any away. Did he threaten the media in any way? What he did is what we call criticising not intimidating as the media is calling it , ” he said.
