Hon. Sakeni at the launch of the Study Report on
Media Laws and Policy in Zambia at the MISA
Zambia House in February 2013
The Media Institute of Southern African (MISA) Zambia is shocked with the death of Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Kennedy Sakeni.
His death yesterday at the University Teaching Hospital is not only shocking but a blow to the media industry because Mr Sakeni had a heart for the media and journalists at heart. He was a true believer that dialogue and engagement on issues of freedom of expression including the press in Zambia was cardinal to sustaining Zambia’s democracy and good governance.+
As we mourn him we also wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to His Excellency President Michael Sata, the nation, his family and friends and pray for God’s comfort during this time. We also pray that his soul may find eternal rest in God’s loving arms.
