STATE MEDIA URGED TO MAINTAIN TEAM SPIRIT

The Acting Principal Secretary for the Ministry of Communications, Science and Technology has urged news reporters, producers and presenters to maintain team spirit throughout the elections coverage and beyond.

Mrs. 'Maleloko Nkhahle said this when addressing those who will be deployed in various parts of the country to cover the 2017 snap elections due on Saturday of 03 June. The meeting took place at the Lesotho Television studio premises in Maseru on Thursday morning.

Mrs. Nkhahle urged them to abide by the code of conduct governing the media industry for professionalism and to further protect the image of the Lesotho National Broadcasting Service (LNBS) by reporting facts.

She said much as the Constitution of Lesotho allows freedom of association and freedom of choice to everyone, media should remain impartial at all times.

She commented that since this is not the first time that the state media covers the general elections, those deployed should do their work as expected to provide the nation with the right information.

Sharing the same sentiments, the LNBS Director General, Mr. Lebohang Moqasa also appealed to journalists to execute their work as expected, saying it is through team work that their role could be improved further.

Lesotho will be going for 2017 snap elections following the successful passing of vote of no confidence against the government led by Prime Minister, Dr Pakalitha Mosisili by the opposition parties in the National Assembly in March.
