Botswana’s ‘Freedom of Press’ Ranking Improves

Botswana’s ‘Freedom of the Press Ranking improves, says RWB

Botswana's 'Freedom of the Press' ranking has gone up, according to the French NGO, Reporters Without Borders (RWB), which places the country at 42, 20 places up from the country’s 2010 ranking.

In its 2011-2012 Press Freedom Index, which ranks Namibia at 20th, the RWB has declared the Southern African nation, the only African state whose press operates in a ‘good situation’.

The organisation states media independence can only be maintained in strong democracies and that democracy needs media freedom.
