IPPR defiant after Tweya barbs
The barbed reaction by information and communication technology minister Tjekero Tweya to the findings of the ‘Access Denied’ report, highlighting the dire state of access to information in Namibia’s public and private sectors, has been met with disappointment and a firm rebuttal by its authors.
The Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) on Tuesday promptly defended its report, which was published in December last year, and said is stands by the findings and research methods.
Tweya Attacks IPPR over Information Access Report
INFORMATION minister Tjekero Tweya on Tuesday labelled a report by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) as being “unfounded and misleading”.
The report, titled ‘Access Denied’, was published and launched by the IPPR in early December last year, and contained the findings of an access to information survey of more than 100 public, private, civil society organisations and state-owned enterprises.
