The media has an important role in passing across information to the masses.
Recently, it has been accused of watering down its content. Our news presenters are allegedly turning out to be agents of fashion than they are casters.
Do you think that the Kenyan media has become an emblem of mediocrity than of the seriousness that it ought to be? Is press freedom a reality or does the government still control what is to be aired to the masses?

Does the African Union represent the African people or is it there to serve the egoistic lot that runs African governments? I bet no African country was forced into signing the Rome Statute. Why is it that they are now fighting as a unit to get out of it when things have become hot? Is African democracy real or is it still a fantasy? Do the people have a say in making such decisions as their countries being part of the ICC or is it simply a closed room presidents’ affair?
After an emotive session on relationships, this Friday we embark on discussions around the AU verdict that President Uhuru Kenyatta shouldn’t go to the ICC and how African leaders want to escape punishment for crimes against humanity. That, plus what we understand on our political rights as Africans, and how nepotism, injustice, sexism and classism have shaped our politics and cultural lives.
