Lusaka, May 3,ZANIS— Deputy Minister of Information and Broadcasting Mwansa Kapeya has said government will ensure that all journalists were adequately educated and properly mandated to carry out their job.

He noted that journalists were the builders of peace and have over the past years been contributing to the peace and stability which Zambia is enjoying at the moment.
Mr. Kapeya was speaking at the World Press Freedom Day celebrations in Mazabuka today.
He said since independence, the country has continued to live in peace because of the manner in which local journalists report.
