Kalindo said in an interview after Friday’s Parliament session that he would be the voice of the media in the committee.
“I will try as much as possible to bring about issues that will enhance media freedom. Though I am new to the committee, I will try to study issues that are on the table first concerning the media and I can assure the media that they have a friend in me,” he promised.
Kalindo further said that he would specifically focus on fighting against media harassment in their line of duty.
“We are talking about giving relevant information to the media and also the harassment of the media when they are covering functions. Media harassment should be a thing of the past,” he said.
