“The media has a role to inspire change in society. African leaders should appreciate the role of the media and partner with them to inform as well as educate the society,” he said. “African leaders, Tanzanians included, are dutybound to ensure that their people have the freedom to engage in public discourse on issues affecting them to inspire development; they should refrain from viewing the media as an enemy.”
