MFA to hold the first ever ANNUAL KENYA MEDIA WEEK

MFA to hold the first ever ANNUAL KENYA MEDIA WEEK

Media 
Description 

Media Focus on Africa (MFA) will this month unveil a new series of media roundtable discussions featuring media owners, media practitioners, schools of journalism, government institutions and independent media organizations to discuss the future of journalism in Kenya. The roundtables will culminate in the first ever media week held in Kenya.

The topics to be discussed will include economic sustainability of media in Kenya; fake news and interest-driven journalism; and the future of journalism and democracy in Kenya.

MFA aims to use the series of roundtables and the media week to promote an environment where the media can operate independently and professionally, while at the same time provide a platform where stakeholders can jointly think of ways of dealing with challenges that face the media today and in the near future.

The project is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and will be implemented in collaboration with a local University to be selected.
