Elections and freedom of expression

Zambian elections are up-coming. How do new and old laws and regulations affect media and internet coverage of it? With recent examples from Uganda and Tanzania we discuss the recurring crack down on the freedom to speak on internet.


  • Richard Mulonga, president of Bloggers of Zambia,
  • Fatma Karume, barrister from Tanzania, barred to practicing law in her own country.
  • Stella Nyanzi, Ugandan human rights activist, poet, and medical anthropologist
  • Joan Barata, international expert on media and cyber laws. 

Host: David Isaksson, Editor in-chief of Global Bar Magazine and Global Podd.

Free to blog, Free to speak. A special podcast serie on freedom of expression in cooperation between Bloggers of Zambia and Global Bar Magazine (Sweden).  Episode 1.
