Second arrest of a journalist since inauguration of President Mwanawasa

first_img 31.05.2002 – Second arrest of a journalist since inauguration of President MwanawasaReporters Without Borders protests against the brutalisation of Emmanuel Chilekwa, editor of the privately-owned newspaper The People, who was arrested today for libelling Zambian President Levy Mwanawasa.”We ask you to show your clear commitment to press freedom and to ensure that no other journalist will be arrested” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Mwanawasa, who has sued Chilekwa. Reporters Without Borders has called for the offence of “defaming the president” to be depenalised.The Police have released Emmanuel Chilekwa, who wrote that President Mwanawasa had Parkinson’s Disease, without charging him with defaming the President. “They just hand-cuffed me, beat me up and demanded to know who gave me the information about the President and then released me. I refused to give them the information because it is against my ethics”, the journalist said. Fred M’Membe, editor of the privately-owned daily The Post, was detained by police for several hours on 11 February and then released on bail after being charged with libel for reporting that opposition MP Dipak Patel had called the president “a cabbage.” Patel himself was arrested and held for several hours. Police announced on 26 February that proceedings against him had been dropped after he publicly apologised.

Burundi: Radio Isanganiro under pressure

first_img Receive email alerts News Reports Nsabiyabandi spent the afternoon at SNR headquarters being questioned about his supposed collaboration with Radi Inzamba and Humura, two Burundian exile radio stations based in neighbouring Rwanda.The SNR also accused him of not adhering to Radio Isanganiro’s established editorial policies and of stirring up public opinion and inciting revolt, without being able to mention any specific reportage or piece of news that would corroborate these accusations. Nsabiyabandi denied all the accusations and pointed out that, since his appointment as the radio station’s editor in October 2016, he has not receiving any warning from the National Communication Council for bias or misreporting the news.As he was leaving the SNR agents threatened him of possible consequences should he not change his behaviour. Exile radio stations targetedThe regime had already made it clear at a news conference on 17 March that an offensive against independent media outlets was being planned. In particular, the government’s spokesman issued a warning to Bujumbura-based radio stations that were closed down and are now broadcasting from abroad.The authorities appear above all to be targeting the exile radio stations in Rwanda: Humura, an offshoot of the old RPA, and Radio Inzamba, which is operated by journalists who used to work for Radio Isanganiro and Bonesha FM. Both broadcast their news programmes online and via WhatsApp.Their very existence and their interviews of Burundians in refugee camps are an achievement. But they have had problems obtaining reliable information from Burundi and they have no access to government officials so they cannot get official reactions and cannot reflect all sides to some of the stories they report.“This intimidation of Burundian journalists in Burundi over their alleged collaboration with exile radio stations is designed to make it even harder for these radio stations to work and to isolate them even more,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“The Burundian government should be interested in a democratic and pluralistic debate to which the media could contribute. On the contrary, the authorities seem to favour a single narrative, one that supports President Nkurunziza’s exclusive power.”Internal pressureYesterday’s interrogation of Radio Isanganiro’s editor by the SNR seems also designed to intimidate journalists working for media outlets within Burundi, who are under constant pressure, including within their own news organizations.Radio Isanganiro is symptomatic of this situation. After being closed down like all the other independent radio stations in May 2015, it was allowed to reopen with Samson Maniradukunda appointed by a pro-government supervisory board as its new director, replacing Anne Niyuhire, who had fled to Rwanda.To get permission to reopen, Radio Isanganiro had to sign an undertaking to pursue a “balanced and objective” editorial policy that respects the country’s “security.”What “balanced and objective” means is left to the government and the new director, who makes it his job to implement government directives restricting the radio station’s editorial freedom. Sources close to the station say he has repeatedly intervened to get programmes changed after receiving calls from members of the government.Radio Isanganiro’s journalists complain of being under constant pressure at work. Several of them were recently fired for defending their principles while those still there are alarmed by the fact that they have had to sign a new code of ethics.In a country where the rule of law has been ignored for the past two years, where people can be arrested by intelligence officials and never reappear, and where everything is being done to tighten the regime’s grip on the population, the mere fact of having to sign a document at work can be very disturbing.Burundi is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

From “Bad Moon Rising” to “Centerfield” (with its plaintive plea, “Put me in, coach!”) Fogerty has earned 18 Gold Albums, 10 Platinum Albums and even been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Gifted singer/songwriter Jackson Browne cemented his reputation decades ago with his third record, Late For The Sky, with its literate, heart-felt meditative masterpiece, “For a Dancer.”  And now in time for this tour it’s been re-mastered and re-released, as Browne gets ready to unveil his 14th studio album later this fall, Standing in the Breach, which is sure to express his earnest advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, safe energy and the value of the arts—and the complicated affairs of the heart. No other popular performer today has successfully combined such an uncompromising level of emotional artistry with a compelling vision of social justice like Jackson Browne. Fogerty has been going down that long, winding “Mystic Highway” since he and his inimitable band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, played Woodstock, and he’s still knocking people’s socks off with his great distinctive voice, fantastic guitar work and an unstoppable bayou-boogie beat. Fogerty’s repertoire of hits never grows old. And to imagine him on a bill with Jackson Browne, each performing full sets with their own bands. Together, their music has been the soundtrack to generations. It promises to be a night for the ages. Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, 1000 Ocean Pkwy., Wantagh.$31-$72.15. 6:30 p.m. Aug. 5Kiss / Def LeppardEighty’s hair band rockers Kiss and Def Leppard storm the beach to rock n’ roll all night.

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, 1000 Ocean Pkwy., Wantagh.$31-$72.15. 7 p.m. Aug. 6Hillary ClintonThe Hillary Clinton book tour/pseudo-pre-presidential campaign-or-something-like-that is coming to Long Island.

UW women ready to face Washington

first_imgAlthough many Wisconsin teams’ schedules will only heat up over Thanksgiving break, the women’s basketball team is anticipating just the opposite: a break.After a two-game weekend set out west in Washington, the Badgers will have to wait a little bit longer as Washington travels to the Kohl Center for a nonconference matchup Wednesday night.Wisconsin split the past weekend, falling at Gonzaga Friday 62-53 before triumphing at Washington State Sunday 52-44. If it wasn’t for some inconsistent offense in the first game of the weekend, Wisconsin could have swept the pair of weekend games.“To play [one of the] best teams in the country, and lead them by 14 – you gotta finish the game,” head coach Bobbie Kelsey said. “Obviously that team is very experienced and found a way to pull away from us – but I was very proud of them because we’re one of the least experienced teams in the country.”Although Wisconsin struggled to close the game against Gonzaga, UW scored eight points in the final minute to seal the deal Sunday against Washington State. As Washington comes to Madison, Kelsey welcomes an opponent she used to see a lot of dating back to her assistant coaching days at Stanford.Her coaching tenure at Stanford also included a Final Four run, during which the Cardinal matched up against Xavier, the former coaching home to current Huskies head coach Kevin McGuff. Kelsey said she expects her sideline adversary to key on some mistakes the Badgers made last weekend.“You kind of think about what he did then, because you don’t really change a whole lot,” Kelsey said. “He’s going to trap you; he’s going to run off-ball screens.”This comes after Friday’s game, in which Wisconsin coughed up 21 turnovers to a pressing Gonzaga team.The Huskies will likely lean on redshirt senior Kristi Kingma for their press, the only current Huskies player Kelsey said she distinctly remembers coaching in what was then the Pac-10.The 5-foot-11 guard/forward led Washington with 15.6 points per game last season and has scored in double figures in all four of Washington’s victories thus far.One thing Washinton will not bring to Madison, however, is a deep lineup. The Huskies have run with a seven- or eight-player rotation throughout all four games this season, even in blowout victories.The Badgers have spread minutes through nine- or 10-player rotations through their three games, so a possible advantage may be in overall team depth. Senior guard Taylor Wurtz noted an up-tempo game may be the Badgers’ best ally.“A big thing we’re keying on is offensive boards … and just playing good, high-pressured defense,” Wurtz said. “We really want to push the tempo.”Pushing the tempo becomes a more difficult task, considering this will be the Badgers’ third game in just six days, including a pair of flights to and from the state of Washington.Morning practices have seemingly become a regularity for a team that has spent loads of time on the road lately. Although in just her second year with the team, sophomore forward Jacki Gulczynski said she thinks the team has adapted to its hectic schedule, noting it provides a great chance for the team to come together.“We’ve bonded as a team, adding a lot of team chemistry, especially on the road,” Gulczynski said.A chaotic schedule can lead from one game to the next, and scouting opponents tends to take a backseat. At this point in the season, the Badgers are just trying to key on themselves.“We went over their scheme and what they’re going to do,” Gulczynski said. “At the end, we’re just trying to focus on what we’re trying to do, our end.”last_img read more
