Do you know the absence of free press is a leading contributor to the succession of bad governments, instability and failure of Somalia?
Freedom of press is a culture and institution that are essential to the survival of healthy societies. That is because without freedom of thought and expression, there is no democracy, no free choice, also there is no truth and no counter-measures to abuse of both public and private strongmen. There is no check against clan violence and fight for undeserved privileges and suppression of other people’s rights.
When you notice signs of freedom of the press, don’t take it for granted. Support it. Warsame Digital Media WDM is one of the few outlets, if not the only one, in Somalia that talks truth to power. Join it to help, share it, comment and contribute to it.
