We shall examine the scope of the citizen’s freedom of expression under section 12 of the Constitution, namely his:

We shall also discuss:

  • whether a Freedom of Information Act is necessary in our democracy;
  • whether the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) is fulfilling its statutory role vis a vis radiobroadcasters;
