Episode 43: The State vs The Media

Episode 43: The State vs The Media

We are now 46 days away from this year’s general election. This week, we talk to Christine Mungai, a writer and journalist, about Kenya’s media. We talk about the July 2013 media breakfast at State House, the laws this government has passed to undermine press freedom; the impact media ownership and advertising have on what gets covered; the intimidation of journalists, bloggers and social media users; censorship by Ezekiel Mutua and the KFCB, and the 2017 general election. How are we doing as compared to the rest of the region and the world when it comes to media freedom? How does the state undermine this freedom? Press play to find out!
