Panel Discussion: How has the New Media Act Affected Journalism in Kenya? Dec. 16 2014 @ Goethe-Institut
Date: December 16 2014
Time: 6.00 pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
How has the New Media act affected journalism in Kenya?
In December 2013, Kenya’s National Assembly passed the Kenya Information and Communications (Amendment) Act (KICA), and the Media Council Act. The new media law enables a new government-controlled board (Communications and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal) to revoke journalists’ accreditation, and fine journalists up to 500.000/= KSh (media companies up to 20 million KSh) if they breach a government-dictated code of conduct.
Journalists and members of Parliament, moderated by Peter Murimi (investigative journalist and film maker), will examine the challenges the media face operating under this act.
In cooperation with the Embassy of Switzerland.

DUST ON OUR HEARTS follows 30-year-old Kathi, who dreams of succeeding as an actress in Berlin. Her overbearing mother Chris works as a life coach and likes to apply her professional knowledge to analyse her daughter’s problems, at times to great humorous effect and with strong hints at Cassavettes’ legendary acting techniques. When Kathi’s father suddenly returns after a 15-year absence, she finds herself in a cross-fire between her bickering parents. To complicate matters, Kathi temporarily loses her own four-year-old son.
