The National Communication Council and the Union of Cameroon Online Journalists on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 explored challenges and best practices concerning online journalism in Cameroon.

 

 

Opening the discussion at the Council’s headquarters in Yaounde, Vice President Peter Essoka emphasized the need for online journalists to strike a balance between protecting privacy and upholding freedom of expression.

This is because the meteoric rise of social networks and micro-blogging platforms raises important new ethical and practical challenges for both online journalists and policy makers, the Vice President said.

Dr Baba Wame who is president of the Union of Cameroon Online Journalists corroborated the Vice President’s remark that the discussion marked the start of concerted efforts in carrying out the complex task of regulating online media.

Dr Baba Wame who handed over a list of online media with Cameroon as their main focus said the main clog on the wheel of journalism practice in the country was lack of professional training.

The discussion ended with a call by the Vice President on the guild not to view the Council as a teacher who used the whip more than the chalk.
