Info bill awaits Zuma's hand

Johannesburg -  The controversial Protection of State Information Bill awaits President Jacob Zuma's decision on whether or not to be passed into law.

The majority-voted bill saw 189 'yes' votes and 74 'no' votes when it was brought before Parliament yesterday.

Groups lobbying for the media and public to access to state information, said the two-year struggle was far from over.

Meanwhile, media lawyer Dario Milo said to eNCA that the revised editions of the bill should be seen as evidence of what public pressure can achieve. He said while the bill was a much better product, there are still flaws which need addressing. 

Watch: Dario Milo talks to eNCA about the 'secrecy' bill.
