MISA: Namibia, which stands for the Media Institute of Southern Africa: Namibia, is an organization designed, for all intents and purposes, to promote Namibian rights and responsibilities, as well as tolerance, liberty and happiness. To do this, MISA monitors the media environment through a multitude of avenues, including increasing the number of defamation cases against the media, combatting challenges of media freedom and maintaining a proactive engagement with civil society and government.
MISA: Namibia works with institutions, such as the National Society of Human Rights, around issues that have a direct bearing on not only the quality of journalism in the country, but also the freedoms of the media.
As a group, MISA believes that while people have the freedom and right express their views, there are certain responsibilities that go with that freedom. The group also believes that is the right of the people within a society to know how the government officials function and that it is not only the right of the media, but also the responsibility to convey such operations to the general public.
Namibia is one the world’s most renowned destinations for those seeking world-class safaris. With a rich diversity of geological phenomena, including the Fish River Canyon, Brandberg and the unique star shaped Dune Mountains in Sossusvlei, as well as the Namib Desert, which is home to elephants, rhinos, lions and giraffes.
