In December 1989, a group of media practitioners largely drawn from various southern African countries convened in Chobe, northern Botswana, to discuss “the right to inform and be informed”. This sowed the seeds of what was to become the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA). The organisation was established in Namibia in 1992 to promote an independent, pluralistic and free press.

MISA Lesotho was established in 1996.
