MBABANE – Media watchdogs believe that the media should not be censored on reporting about the rare medical case.
Director of the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Swaziland Chapter Comfort Mabuza said the story is in the interest of the public because it is the first of its kind in the country’s medical history. He noted that there was a similar case in South Africa that was also reported about. “It is not a happy story for the family but reporting about it is in the interest of the public,” he said. He pleaded with the media to exercise caution when reporting about the matter and preferably not identify the family.
