Malawian journalists joined fellow global associations and unions in acknowledging that journalism is a profession worth protecting, by forming a union.

The membership base of the Journalists’ Union of Malawi continues to increase and currently the membership of JUMA is pegged at 65 paid up members. The union has been proactive in informing and sensitizing its members about their rights and ensuring that conditions of service for journalists are uphold.
