@AfricaAnalyst Usually news from such events is not about the routine proceedings. In this case it was about the strong opposition to the proposed tax. Our story had reasons why the tax is being imposed - to balances the aspect of the opposition to the tax.
@AfricaAnalyst You raise an interesting point, about what is news in this instance. Some may argue that what big industry says about this tax, especially when they oppose it, is news, as it risks scuttling the proposed implementation. Which itself would be news.
