Rainbow Party presidential running mate Cosmas Musumali says the closure of the Post Newspaper is a sign of how much panic is in the ruling PF ahead of the August general elections.
Dr. Musumali says the PF is caught in a serious dilemma as to how it should prepare it’s response to the issues of press freedom in the country.
He says the PF government seems not to want any platform that gives the opposition an opportunity to campaign.
Dr. Musumali says the closure of the Post is therefore politically motivated as far as his party is concerned.
He says it is however disappointing that the PF government can go this far to suppress freedom of the press.
