On February 28, African Centre for Media Excellence hosted BBC’s Nancy Kacungira at its first public talk this year. The talks are a programme of aCME intended to expand the spaces for dialogue, debate and in-depth reporting on public affairs.
Ms Kacungira, a multi award-winning journalist spoke about African journalism in the digital age, reminding participants of the need for Africa to retell its story and undo the narrative constructed by the Western media. She said that for Africa, the phenomenon of ‘fake news’ is no surprise as the continent has suffered it at the hands of outsiders who tell a one-sided, skewed story of Africa.
