!Naruseb uncomfortable with media taking photos in NA

12 June 2019 | Politics


Minister of Works and Transport Alpheus !Naruseb on Tuesday complained in the National Assembly (NA) that he is not comfortable with the media taking photos of Members of Parliament (MPs).
The Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry rose during the session on Tuesday to ask National Assembly Deputy Speaker Loide Kasingo whether members of the media covering the NA session were allowed to take pictures of MPs while they were debating national issues.
“Honourable speaker, I just want to know if it is allowed for some people to take photos of others here while we are debating? They have binoculars looking into our cell phones. Is it really allowed?” asked !Naruseb.
Popular Democratic Movement MP Elma Dienda then interjected and questioned whether the minister had something to hide and why he was trying to prevent the media from doing their job.
“Are you busy with porn or why don't you want the media to take photos if you are in Parliament?” Dienda asked.
Kasingo then asked Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Stanley Simataa to explain to the House, how the media should conduct themselves during Parliament sessions.
Simataa informed the MPs that the media should always conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner.
Local media previously reported that Minister of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development Tjekero Tweya was caught browsing an international dating website during a NA session, while Safety and Security Minister Charles Namoloh was also recorded on camera, watching a video clip in Parliament.
