We reiterate our position as MISA-Lesotho that ours is to protect all shades of society as far as the right to freedom of expression of opinion is concerned.

In solidarity with the rest of the world, we acknowledge the fact that radio plays a pivotal role in our daily lives.
Even in times of all-pervasive social media chatter, the traditional media – newspapers, radio, and television – still enjoy a greater credibility than social media. After all, journalists are professional producers of information, and we generally do trust professionals more than amateurs
Covid-19 has aggravated the situation by further exposing weaknesses in our radio industry. Misinformation, propaganda and conspiracy theories are spreading fast on the new media, without radio being able to counter the infodemic.
