The African Union Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Access to Information has sought to address the continued harassment of journalists in the Gambia and other African countries.
An advocate of the South African High Court and current chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission, Tlakula wants to see legal conditions in place in Africa giving journalists the freedom to do their jobs.
Tlakula said this week that a model developed on access to information in Africa has resulted in the adoption of access to information laws by ten countries so far. /IPS (END/Stanley Kwenda/2012)
