Kapijimpanga lauds development journalism studentsBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 21 Aug 2017[easy-social-share counters=0 counter_pos="hidden" total_counter_pos="right" template="20" style="icon" point_type="simple"]
Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga says she is delighted that journalists are showing interest development journalism as opposed to reporting bad news all the time.
Speaking when Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IICM) Development Journalism student Victor Mwila of Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) and his Yatsani Radio counterpart Maybin Katungulu called on her, Kapijimpanga was pleased to note that students from Zambia were taking greater interest in pursuing Development Journalism.
“The world is expeditiously running away for the concept of ‘Bad news makes good news’ as citizens are tired of seeing wars, riots, earth quakes, and deadly diseases among others. Development Journalism is not easy as it needs a journalist to read widely, research, perform leg work, and put in more effort to bring out analytical facts in a fascinating approach for citizens to appreciate,” Kapijimpanga said.
“Development Journalism should celebrate the efforts by government or individuals who are putting in new ideas to see advancement in technology, economic emancipation, and human rights. President Edgar Lungu appreciates the role Development Journalism plays especially that he equally obtained a certificate in journalism at Evelyn Hone College on top of his many scholarly credentials.”
Kapijimpanga urged the students to remain focused and industrious when they returned back home.
This was contained in statement issued by First Secretary for Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in India, Bangwe Naviley.
