3 May 2023 is World Press Freedom Day


Today MISA, the Motor Industry Staff Association representing more than 59 000 employees in the retail motor industry, applauds and honour our courageous journalists in South Africa who puts themselves in danger, but remain committed to report on the exploitation of workers and the neglect and abuse of the most vulnerable and the poor, uncover the truth and expose corruption.


This year we mark the 30th year of this United Nations International Day.


The theme as defined by UNESCO is “Shaping a Future of Rights: Freedom of expression as a driver for all other human rights.”

MISA also pays tribute to all the innocent people who paid the ultimate price for being whistleblowers and pray for their loved ones left behind,” says Martlé Keyter, the Union’s Chief Executive Officer: Operations.
