Kenya: Media Watchdog Calls for Balanced Political Coverage and Reporting

THE National Steering Committee on Media Monitoring has raised concerns over imbalance in coverage of political parties.

Speaking yesterday during a weekly media round table at the ministry of Information offices, director of public communication Mary Ombara, said this trend does not lend itself well to the country’s democratic space.

She urged the media to correct the anomaly which was granting up to 75 per cent of prime space to specific political parties and their candidates.
