Dear all,

The Gambia Press Union with support from the Ministry of Information, Communication & Infrastructure (MoICI) and Ministry of Justice (MoJ) are at an advanced stage for the setting up of a National Media Council known as the Media Council of the Gambia (MCG).

The MCG will be a voluntary media focusing on mediating complaints raised by the public, private, public bodies against the media and building the ethical capacity of media practitioners.

The GPU has long recognized the need for the regulatory framework for the Gambian Media Industry to enhance media professionalism and mitigate conflict media and its stakeholders.

Against this backdrop, the GPU is hereby inviting the general membership to this meeting to solicit your inputs into the MCG draft constitution and the setting up of the council.

Date: Saturday 14th December 2018

Venue: TANGO

Time: 10 am prompt

Yours faithfully,

Haddija Jawara

Programme Officer, GPU
