Declining Standards in Investigative Journalism Worries Media Council of Kenya

The Media Council of Kenya (MCK) has expressed concerns over the declining standards in investigative journalism on development stories, good governance, and other themes of public interest.

The Council’s Director for Media Training and Development Victor Bwire has told a journalists’ workshop in Kajiado County that enhanced capacity building will contribute to remedying the situation.

MCK has partnered with Katiba Institute at the two-day engagement for journalists titled: “Nexus between investigative journalism and Access to Information”.

“Journalists have rights and are also first-line human rights defenders because their work involves identification, documenting, and monitoring human rights violations. This calls for high professionalism and adherence to ethical standards,” said Bwire.

The Media Council of Kenya is constantly reaching out to like-minded institutions like Katiba Institute to continuously engage and assist journalists to learn how to utilize the Access to Information Law to conduct investigative and public interest journalism.
