MISA bemoans the current state of access to information in Africa

The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) has bemoaned the current state of access to information in Africa, citing the negative impact the glaring lack of information is having on the citizenry.

This observation was made during the ongoing NGO Forum of the 51st Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (ACHPR) in the Gambian capital of Banjul.

Referring to the African Platform on Access to Information campaign initiated in 2011, MISA regional specialist on media policy and law, Karen Mohan, said access to information is a right that many African citizens were still struggling to realise.
