Journalists urged to take keen interest in reporting on disaster and other emergencies.

Journalists have been urged to take keen interest in reporting on disaster and other emergencies.
Addressing journalists from radio stations in Eastern province, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Permanent Secretary, Godfrey Malama has charged that journalists tend to give half-baked information when reporting disasters.
Mr Malama has explained that failure to give accurate and well researched information makes the accounts of various issues shallow, inaccurate and inadequate for the community.
He has further called upon stakeholders and the public to strengthen the links between radio and emergency response.
The permanent secretary says that doing this will enable journalists and rescue workers to save lives.
The workshop is aimed at building capacity among radio journalists ahead of the 2016 World Radio Day, which falls tomorrow under the theme Radio in Times of Emergency and Disaster.
