Equipment distribution to Press Clubs well underway

 To start with, UTPC President, Mr Kenneth Simbaya handed them over to senior office-bearers of three Press Clubs namely Mwanza Press Club (MPC), Kagera Press Club (KPC) and Mara Regional Press Club (MRPC in Mwanza in the recent past.


The aforesaid equipment and devices to be distributed, with immediate effect, comprise 16 components in total including desk top computers, laptop computers’, binding machines, lamination machines and photocopiers.

Others include projectors, collapsible screens, professional still cameras, video camera, digital tape recorders, flat screen tv sets, DVD players, UPS, radio receivers and Printers.

Making some few remarks, shortly before he handed the equipment and working devices worth 35.0m/= over to each one of the three Press Clubs leaders - Mr Deus Bugaywa of MPC, Mr Simbaya urged all the Press Clubs to make use of the devices and then routinely maintain them carefully and sensibly. 


He strongly criticized greedy, selfish Press Clubs elements, particularly some leaders, who would have liked to keep the office equipment and devices   for themselves!

He clarified that the entire Press Clubs leadership should, therefore, see to it that such invaluable equipment and working devices help enhance self –reliance spirit, editorial independence and professionalism among all Press Clubs members at large.

On ethics, Mr Simbaya also decried current contemptible downwards trend whereby some reporters identify themselves with affluent, influential people in the society instead of championing the course of the downtrodden, voiceless ones (ends).
