First National Bank (FNB) handed over a N$100 000 sponsorship to the Editors Forum of Namibia (EFN) to host its fundraising dinner at the end of this month.
FNB Group Communication Manager Elzita Beukes said it is important for the financial institution to be involved in Namibia’s media landscape.
Beukes noted the bank will never infringe on the freedom of the media but cautioned that stories need to be balanced and objective, meeting the basic principles of journalism.
She pointed out that it’s in everybody's interest to have a healthy media landscape which in turn will promote a healthy democracy.
EFN Chairperson Joseph Ailongo said it is heartening that corporate Namibia sees the value of the media.
The EFN's fundraising dinner will take place on 27 September and will have acclaimed investigative journalist and author, Jacques Pauw as its special guest.
