The two-day workshop on civil and Military Relationship for members of the security and journalists organised by Media Agenda last Thursday has ended at the Baobao Resort Hotel.

The aim of the meeting, which was co-funded by the American and British embassies, was to create a better relationship, mutual understanding and trust between the two partners.

At the end of the training participants came out with key recommendations, among them is for journalists to always contact the public relations officers of the respective security units for information and for the N IA and the Prisons to contact their Director General for any clarification.

It was also agreed for the journalists and security agencies not to see each other as enemies but as partners in development.

Participants call on the organisers to continue organising similar training in order to cement the relationship.
