SANEF: Mandela Stood for Press Freedom

SANEF says that Nelson Mandela believed the press should be free from government intervention as they were the only ones who could hold those in power accountable

The South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) says that Nelson Mandela believed the press should be free from government intervention as they were the only ones who could hold those in power accountable.

SANEF member, Raymond Louw, points out that, “Mandela believed that then, when our democracy was starting; and his words have never been more apt now than now.”

Speaking at a launch in Houghton ahead of next month’s 2011 Nelson Mandela International Day, Louw said that if Mandela had still been involved in politics, he would be opposed to the proposed Protection of Information Bill.
