Media Role

Media’s role in GBV reporting challenged

The workshop highlighted approaches to writing sensitive issues especially when reporting on Family and Sexual Violence and Sorcery related violence.

The importance of protecting survivors and victims as well as awareness to change public mindsets was top of the agenda.

Deputy Executive Officer of CIMC, Henry Yamo, said gender based violence incidences are reported everyday on the media, however the challenge is to give more distinction to gender base violence incidences in media reporting.
