Media and Election Related to Kenya

I listened to Mr. John G. Tomaszewski, Regional Director for Africa at the International Republican Institute and Alison DeSchryver speak, she is from the National Democratic Institute. She spoke on the topic of Kenyan Elections and violence. In addition, to the elections, she also spoke on the legitimacy. When speaking on the government to help keep up the legitimacy, the Kenyan government decided to demand order with the media. To demand order they did my having a required training for journalist and media. They also went around to ensure that everyone was staying on track and up to the statement.
This was a great experience by being able to see how the media works with politics. Exactly in the way, we look at how things work in different countries especially in Africa.
