Pretoria – Communications Minister Faith Muthambi has lauded the 2016 Print Media Transformation Colloquium, calling it the beginning of the journey towards the full transformation of the print media space in South Africa.
“For us, transformation in the print media is non-negotiable, as it is part of our Constitutional mandate and government agenda. As the gathering recognised the slow pace and resistance to transformation by some in the print media space, we strongly believe that the colloquium is the beginning of the journey to full transformation,” said Minister Muthambi.
Minister Muthambi was speaking on the last day of a two-day Print Media Transformation Colloquium held at Freedom Park in Pretoria.
Hosted by Minister Muthambi, the colloquium, held from 25 to 26 August 2016, brought together key players in the media industry to consult on the sector’s transformation, accountability and diversity priorities.
