Swapo MP says most journalists will celebrate the day when all ministers are fired

WINDHOEK: Swapo Member of Parliament (MP) Kazenambo Kazenambo says most journalists will celebrate the day when all ministers are fired.

He said this on Wednesday in his contribution to the National Health Bill and the Public and Environmental Health Bill introduced by the Minister of Health and Social Services Richard Kamwi in the National Assembly (NA).

He complained that developmental journalism is no longer there – only political journalism which boils down to sensational journalism.

Kazenambo, a former Minister of Youth, National Service, Sports and Culture, said everything in this country is politicised, and because of that the main targets always are the head at that specific institution.

He explained that journalists only focus on the minister as the only person responsible for certain problems, while people in other structures of the hospital are sleeping and relaxing on duty.

The former minister then called on members of the media to start investigating the whole system of an institution, rather than focusing on the head.
