Mali’s Junta Bans Media Reporting on Political Activities

Mali’s ruling junta has banned the media from reporting on the activities of political parties and associations.

This move follows the suspension of all political activities in the country and raises concerns about freedom of information and expression in Mali. The order, issued by Mali’s high authority for communication, was distributed on social media.

The notice said it applied to all forms of the media, including television, radio, online and print newspapers. The ban’s implications and enforcement remain unclear, prompting responses from journalists’ organizations and human rights commissions in Mali, expressing dismay and highlighting the potential negative impact on the country’s social climate.

The junta’s actions, including the recent ban on political activities, have drawn criticism domestically and internationally, with concerns raised about the stalled progress towards democratic rule and the escalating security challenges facing Mali.
