Five Zambian “media houses” said they will “sacrificially fund” Zambia’s Media Council, the Zambian Daily Mail reported.

According to the Times of Zambia, the funding is for the council’s “formative 12-month stage.”

Zambia’s Media Liaison Committee chairman Gillies Kasongo is quoted as describing the council as “self-funding and sustaining voluntary self-regulation.”
