Media houses in Zambia have been told to communicate accurately on information of decentralisation.
Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet, Peter Kasanda said this at the official opening of a media workshop on decentralisation in Lusaka.
Mr. Kasanda says that government generates information on decentralisation but it is the media that interacts with the community.
He says the media must package information on decentralisation in such a way that the community understands.
The three days’ workshop being held at government complex in Lusaka has attracted participants from radio and television stations.
Provincial local government officers, town clerks and council secretaries from across Zambia, officers from cabinet office and ZGF, Zambia Governance Foundation are among those attending the workshop.
