PNG Opposition goes social

In what can be described as a world first, Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) Opposition leader, Belden Namah, called a media conference yesterday inviting only social media, shunning mainstream and conventional media.

Namah claimed that mainstream media is firmly under government censorship with news being heavily supressed. He said most of what he has come out to say against high level corruption has never been publicised in mainstream media.

Blogger, social media activist and TV journalist, Martin Namarong, reported that the press conference was to familiarize with members of online forums and “ended with the understanding, that all opposition communications will now be handled via social media.”
