“This is the first time journalists will be rewarded in standard and quality. We are optimistic that the stories from these areas will help create awareness thereby saving lives,” she said.
Ndanga assured that journalists will write professional stories as they will be able to tap into knowledge of the Bureau’s experts in the field.
In his remarks MBS Acting Chief Executive Officer, Rex Moyo, said through the partnership they would like adequate dissemination of information on issues of standard and quality.
“We want this information to reach far so that every Malawians should embrace the culture of quality,” he said.
