#BungeLive: "...matangazo yatarushwa moja kwa moja na redio zote" - Waziri Nape

SERIKALI imesema inaangalia uwezekano wa kuviruhusu vituo vya redio nchini, kurusha matangazo ya vikao vya Bunge moja kwa moja.

Hatua hiyo imekuja baada ya serikali kupokea maoni ya wadau mbalimbali ikiwemo wanahabari waliokwenda Dodoma, kuonana na Uongozi wa Bunge kujadili suala hilo la matangazo ya Bunge kurushwa moja kwa moja.

Kauli hiyo imetolewa na Waziri wa Habari, Utamaduni, Sanaa na Michezo, Nape Nnauye wakati akizungumza kwenye uzinduzi wa studio ya kuzalishia vipindi ya Mtandao wa Redio za Jamii nchini (COMNETA) iliyopo Chuo Kikuu Huria (OUT) jijini Dar es Salaam.
“Jambo moja ni kwamba kupitia studio za Bunge matangazo yatarushwa moja kwa moja na redio zote zinaweza kupokea matangazo hayo na zenyewe zikarusha. Hii itasaidia hata kupunguza gharama kwa sababu zamani ilikuwa ni lazima utume wa waandishi upeleke vifaa, sasa hii redio nyingi hasa hizi za kijamii haziwezi kumudu,” alisema Nape.
Alisema jambo hilo ni jipya na kwa sababu ni jipya, litakuwa na mapungufu mengi na kadri siku zinavyoenda lazima kuna wadau watakaojitokeza kwa ajili ya kuelezea mapungufu hayo, ambayo serikali itakuwa ikiyafanyia kazi.

Nape alisema serikali iko tayari kukaa katikati ya Bunge, wananchi na wadau wengine kwa ajili ya kuhakikisha wanapata haki yao ya kupata taarifa.

Hata hivyo, Nape aliwataka waandishi wa habari kuongeza uzalendo kwa nchi, kwani wanatakiwa kutambua kuwa mambo wanayoyaandika mwisho yanakuwa na matokeo chanya au hasi.

Akizungumzia studio hiyo, Nape alisema redio za jamii, zina mchango mkubwa hasa katika kukuza demokrsaia nchini na kuongeza uelewa kwa wananchi katika masuala mbalimbali.

Aliongeza kuwa uwekaji wa studio hiyo, utawasaidia hata wanafunzi wanaosomea fani ya uandishi wa habari katika chuo hicho, kuitumia katika kujitolea ili kuongeza uelewa wao.

Kwa upande wake, Mkuu wa Ofisi na Mwakilishi wa Shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa linaloshughulikia Elimu, Sanyasi na Utamaduni (UNESCO), Zulmira Rodriguez alisema, shirika hilo linafurahishwa na maendeleo ya redio hizo nchini.

Alisema, wamefurahishwa na jinsi serikali ilivyorudisha heshima kwa kuzitumia redio hizo katika kutoa taarifa mbalimbali bkwa wananchi na hata katika kipindi cha uchaguzi hilo lilionekana.
“…tunapongeza hilo lakini tunaiomba serikali iendelee kuzitumia redio hizi za kijamii ili kuifikia idadi kubwa ya wananchi hasa wale walioko pembezoni, sisi UNESCO tunaunga mkono redio hizi,” alisema Rodriguez.

Hint Made On Live Bunge Broadcast Resumption



The Minister for Information, Culture, Arts and Sports, Mr Nape Nnauye, has hinted that come next National Assembly session, radio stations can be allowed to broadcast live parliament proceedings.

Speaking at the launch of the community media production studio being hosted by the Open University of Tanzania, Mr Nnauye said that the suspension of live broadcasts of proceedings in the parliament was still a contentious issue for which they were working on the best solution.

"We are aware of the rights of the people to information and we as the ministry given that mandate are ready to sit with the National Assembly, the public and media stakeholders to reach a suitable solution," he said.

Mr Nnauye said that it should, however, be remembered that the decision to suspend live Bunge transmissions was made before the start of the fifth phase government and that it was obvious that the new regulations would come with their challenges.

He said that should radios be given the green light to broadcast live the parliament sessions, the advantage is to increase the scope of coverage and reduce cost to the media houses, which they would incur in transporting personnel and equipment.

Regarding the launch of the production studio, the minister said the community media was regarded as one of the most important channels for promoting inclusive democratic participation and providing a forum for engagement in decision-making due to its potential in reaching the section of population that is not easily served by the mainstream media.

Mr Nnauye observed that the project was important for the country to develop local radio capacities in using new technologies to support coverage of development issues and exchange of views among the audience.

"The project is also important to bridge the difference in access to knowledge and information between people living in the urban areas and those living in the rural areas," he explained.

The United Nations Education, Scientific and Culture Organisation (UNESCO) Country Representative, Ms Zulmira Rodrigues, said that she was thrilled to have been part of the project as she believes that community radios are invaluable in increasing good governance.

Ms Rodrigues said that UNESCO has had a long history in the support of community radios all over the global including Tanzania and that it is the only media that can engage those who are illiterate.
