At Thursday’s plenary, cameramen and photojournalists who were cleared by the National Assembly management to cover the day’s legislative business, boycotted it, in solidarity with their counterparts who have been barred.

Only government-owned television stations covered yesterday’s proceedings of the Senate. Reporters are not affected by the controversial policy.

While arriving at the controversial decision which has incurred the wrath of correspondents covering the National Assembly, the parliament’s management said those affected have been accused by lawmakers of exhorting money from them.

They have also alleged that the move is part of measures, geared at mitigating against threats to the safety and security of lawmakers.
