Media Tribunal - Press Freedom threatened in South Africa

The ANC government is about to initiate the Media Tribunal - basically, if you're a journo and you report on 'classified' documents, you could get a 25 year prison term. This after the local press has exposed scandal after scandal involving government officials - anything from bribery and corruption, looting of state coffers, scandalous spending sprees and nepotism (our president's son is about to become a billionaire at age 28 through a 'strategic' deal with ArcelorMittal).

This new Bill would allow any members of government to declare any document as 'classified'.

The Zuma Monster dealing with the press.

 Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema are mugging Nelson Mandela('s legacy).
