There are several private radio stations and a national radio service which is partly government-funded. Newspapers are privately-owned.

The constitution guarantees press freedom and this is usually respected by the government, says Freedom House.

There were 77,000 internet users by December 2018 (InternetWorldStats.com).

A 2016 Cybercrime Act broadened defamation laws to include online publications. Journalists warned that it could be used to restrict independent reporting, Freedom House said.
