Penguin Random House Supports Uncensored Press

Penguin Random House South Africa wants to reiterate its complete support for a free, uncensored press in South Africa. 
 
Any attempt to silence journalists should be exposed and prevented. For a society to flourish, it needs the open and free expression of ideas and debate within that society’s legal framework.
