Director in the South African Press Council

Joe Thloloe

The Nieman Fellowship has supported people in countries that are very repressive. Comparing then and now, it’s day and night. What happened [in South Africa] was that our freedom to express ourselves was very limited. Every time we wrote something we were wondering if the police would come knocking, but now we’ve got freedom of expression guaranteed in the constitution.”
