Torit: Journalists receive training on media laws

Author : | Published: Tuesday, April 28, 2015

The Association for Media Development in South Sudan, AMDISS, is conducting awareness workshops on media laws and journalist code of conduct in Eastern Equatoria State.

Journalists are sharing their experiences in the three-day workshop in Torit town.

“Actually, it’s a training not only raising awareness and because we are going to talk about at least two main things – the code of conduct for journalists which many of you are maybe not aware of and then there are media laws,” said Alfred Taban, Chairman of AMDISS.

The acting state minister of information, Ochan Bongomin, urged journalists to respect their ethics and code of conduct.

He says the government and the media should work together within the laws.

“We consider media as a friend of government,” Mr Bongomin stated. “Media should not be an enemy to the government. It should work hand in hand. In fact the media is acting as a brake…..a car without a brake..….will crash.”

More than 50 journalists are taking part in the training that ends tomorrow.
