“The challenges of insecurity are also affecting the journalists.

“This is because security is also part of the welfare system they require in order to do their job; unsafe environment affects their state of mind.

“It is important for all journalists to have insurance coverage,’’ he said.

He encouraged the general public to support journalists in their struggle as they could not do it alone.

“Journalists need our support especially those in the field; NAN cannot do the advocacy alone,’’ he said.

Runsewe advised journalists to take good care of their health and go for regular checkups.

According to him, journalists go through stress in the cause  of  news coverage and production.

He condemned the attitude of suffering in silence and encouraged journalists to confide in one another about their problems.

“The problem with us is that we don’t like to share our problems; look for your friend you can confide in.

“If you have a problem just share it; you never know who can help you.

Also you need to know that you are not alone,’’ he advised.
