Our 70 Nampula correspondents spread across 23 districts of Nampula province, are struggling to gain accreditation to cover the entire electoral process. More than two weeks into the Election Campaign, the Electoral Bodies Press Centre (CPE and STAE) has not yet commented on the letter submitted to the Provincial Election Commission on 21 May this year. The head of the Nampula correspondents team was advised by Press Centre Chief Josina Taipo not to talk about CIP or credentials again, for reasons she declined to disclose.
At a press conference held last Tuesday (17), Albertino Luis, CPE’s spokesman said that only 102 journalists from a total of 145 media professionals have been accredited so far.
