The manager of a local community radio station, Super Bongese 104.4 FM in Gbarnga, Bong County, has reminded local journalists to observe media ethics as he has vowed to vehemently campaign against any form of unethical behaviors exhibited by local journalists across the western region of Liberia.

J. Samuel Kplaiwru was recently appointed by president of the Press Union of Liberia as its central regional coordinator to steer the affairs of the union in that part of the country.

Kplaiwru`s comments come as a result of many unethical practices that are being carried out by some media actors in the rural counties ahead of the much publicized October 10 presidential and legislature in Liberia.
Although he did not point out individuals found in the act, the new PUL regional coordinator cautioned reporters and media entities under his supervision to refrain from such ugly act as he will not hesitate in prosecuting anyone caught.
J. Samuel Kplaiwru: “my office will not condone unethical practices by any journalists, and I will also not fail to name and shame any persons caught breeching the journalistic code of ethics of the PUL, as these vices have the ability to undermine functionaries of journalists in Liberia.”
He promised to work with his professional wealth of experience so as to properly coordinate the affairs of the PUL, thereby bringing journalists together in order to work for the common good of the union.
It follows a daylong conversation between the president of the union and some local journalists within that part of the country.
Speaking at the end of the meeting held at Super Bongese Radio Station in Gbarnga, Bong County, Mr. Cuffey said the decision was based on consultation with the national leadership of PUL.
He cautioned local journalists to observe professionalism in the discharge of their duties especially during the electoral process and should respect the validated code of conduct governing journalists in Liberia.
However, participants of the meeting lauded the PUL president for his farsightedness over the inclusiveness of local journalists in the leadership of the union.
