2016-09-19

The Department of Informatics and Media guest researcher, Vicensia Shule from University of Dar es Salaam, has not only taken the opportunity while here to analyse and reflect on the current media development in Tanzania under the new President Magufuli – but has also been invited to speak about it with Swedish media.

An interview with Vicensia Shule in the Nordic Africa Institute’s online news on the topic Freedom of speech in Tanzania under attack.

The Swedish Radio (SR) picked up the news and they made an interview with her on strategies used to navigate the restricted public communicative spaces, from which you could hear a few sentences in SR P1 (Sunday 18 September at 6.56 am).

Vicensia Shule will be around for another two weeks before returning to Tanzania. In the coming week (23-24 September 2016) she will participate as a presenter at the Nordic Africa Days as will also Cecilia Strand and Ylva Ekström.
