The decision, As stated by a press release signed by the secretary of the chapel, Mr Samuel Luka, was taken at an emergency congress, adding that it was as a result of a perceived humiliation of journalists by the Deputy governor.
According to Luka, the Deputy Governor had asked journalists who were in his office on an invitation to cover a meeting to go out as they were not needed there.
“The Chapel wishes to express dismay that the action of the deputy governor is uncalled for and is capable of jeopardizing the working relationship between them and the office of the deputy governor,” the statement stated inter alia.
