The Press Freedom arm of Africa Media Development Foundation (AMDF), Africa Media Watch, has been renamed.
Africa Media Watch, which will now be known and addressed as Press Freedom Africa’ shall run its publications under a new website www.pressfreedomafrica.org, according to an official statement signed by it’s Executive Director, Iliya Kure.
According to Mr. Kure, “the change is to give the desk a name that describes the objective and purpose of its creation.
“Since its establishment in the first quarter of this year, the desk has been vocal in highlighting issues of press freedom violations across Africa and calling on authorities to respect the rights of journalists by allowing them to operate freely.
“Africa Media Development Foundation will continue to work towards attainment of its objective of providing professional support to journalists anywhere in Africa.”
