The new leadership of the Media Institute of Southern Africa -MISA Malawi chapter says it is optimistic that it will be able to improve visibility of the organisation within the first tenure.
The remarks have been made by the chairperson of MISA Malawi Tereza Temweka Ndanga when YFM online was seeking an analysis of the six months she has been in office.
“The past six months have been a milestone. We have managed to train members of the media from various community radio stations.
“We have also done a number of projects on Access to Information because this is in line with MISA goals of demanding transparency and accountability,” she said
Ndanga said they are currently working on a big project to improve the visibility of our organisation.
“We managed to hold a fundraising event though the turnout was not that good we still made some profits,” said Ndanga while adding that they will also hold a fundraising dinner on December 30 at Golden Peacock in Lilongwe.
The chair also hailed members of the press for the contributions they are making towards the purchase of the office.
“We have received some contributions from some of our members although it has not been easy since this is an unusual strategy, but at the end of the day it is for a good course.”
MISA Malawi has set a MK30 million for the procurement of an office building which the organisation has not owned for about 20 years.
