Njaunju murder: Governments asks for patience

The Malawi government has asked the general public at large to refrain from making speculations on the unsolved murder of Issa Njauju.

Njaunju was until his death the Director of the Corporate Affairs responsible for General Administration, Finance and Human Resource of the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB).

He was found buried along the Lilongwe River near the presidential villas in the capital city, Lilongwe.

In statement signed by its spokesperson the government believes the “wild” hearsays surrounding his “cowardly” murder are deeply hurting the bereaved family and colleagues at the ACB who have lost a dear friend, husband and father.

Kondwani Nankhumwa adds that Njaunju’s death must not be a treated as a source of propaganda by anyone.

“The Malawi Police Service (MPS) has opened investigations into this tragic death. Government, and all law abiding citizens, will therefore wait for the findings of these professional investigations to take an informed stand on the matter,” states Nankhumwa.

According to the Minister of Information, MPS is working around the clock to find the real truth of the matter.

“Therefore, the public is hereby being guaranteed that perpetrators of this heinous act will be found and be brought to book. The criminals can run, but not hide,” he sent an assuring message.

Government has further appealed to the general public to assist the Police with relevant information that may lead to the apprehension of the criminals.

Most critics allege that Njaunju’s death is in one way of the other linked to the on-going investigations towards uncovering the truth behind the massive systematic looting and plundering of tax payer’s money at Capital Hill which is the seat of the government of Malawi.

Malawi is seen to have strong anti-corruption laws and institutions and initiatives by the private sector complement the governmental efforts, this according to transparency.org.

However, experts state that there is still a significant gap between law and practice.

“For example, civil society and media are two areas where there are adequate laws to protect their independence and freedom, but where the government exerts a strong influence,” adds the corruption watchdog.

Lack of adequate funding and human resources for public institutions also add to the erosion of the accountability mechanisms.

    Tonight’s Must See Monday was one that I have been looking forward to for a while. Eric Newton, senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, was our guest speaker who spoke to all of us about the future of journalism as it may look today. This was also very important for me to attend due to the fact that it is the last posting for Cronkite Conversations that will be accepted for the Christiane Amanpour luncheon.“Do you have any idea how lucky you are?” Newton began the night. He asked us this to get us to think about our future at the Cronkite School. His first point was about the digital age and the unexpected outcomes.We time traveled through time to explore the four ages of human communication. The categories included visual, language, mass media and digital. These began from 1-2 m BC all the way up through 1991 AD.There were approximately 1 million years of visual media until verbal media came along and skyrocketed. This interested me because I knew this all along, I just never thought about it in this context which makes the topic sound huge.Newton showed us some different journalism perspectives that showed how fiction writers dream up things that people can’t seem to calculate. The first principal is to think crazy and unconventional to find something new and ground breaking. We talk about this a lot in journalism to get students to think of ways to be innovative and get entrepreneurship visions started.I found one of his slides very interesting which showed how each generation is raised and comes of age as a different news medium is rising. He stated that about 80 years there has been a crisis and a great awakening. This reminds me of some of Aaron Browns Must See Monday lectures in which he tried to express that America had not recovered over time due to 9/11.I never thought I would visualize and experience so many different patterns over time in which media and journalism evolved before our eyes. I have known that we are in a changing generation that accesses more technologies than in the past which shows American progress. I don’t think I ever would have seen how large this topic is had I not attended this amazing Must See Monday with Eric Newton.

    Today Eric Newton, Senior Advisor to the President of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, spoke out to the public about history and the future of news. Specifically what 1767 tells us about 2100-2110. He eagerly told us that as Cronkite students we are attending the only University that is a two time winner for media innovation from the Knight Foundation. The lecture proceeded into how one may know what will happen in the future, especially to a year so far away like 2110. People in their twenties currently play key roles, people like us. Every new generation creates new news media outlets. Ever since the American Revolution, all throughout civil war and the third awakening, new medias have developed. From pamphlets to the world wide web the news world is evolving. In order to keep developing and opening our minds to newer and more intelligent ways of learning and experiencing news in our world we, as journalists, must do a number of things. We must be more creative, have truthful storytelling, watch more science fiction, understand the past and present of news etc. Basically, we must think of crazier and grandiose ways to further the development of news media in order to progress in the future.
