Journalism is not a crime.
Tonse administration and its supporters have taken actions aimed at reducing media space and freedoms.
Those aggrieved or injured by the media in any way, can report to and engage Media Council of Malawi
Media freedom is key to democracy and should be promoted and protected at all cost.
