Two citizen journalists from Turkana, Carol Akai and Bedan Lomor were featured on the Aljazeera.
Carol and Bedan were part of a project by Cordaid, a nongovernmental development and aid agency and Content House, a local production house. They were trained to become Citizen Journalists in order to empower them to become voices of their communities.
The results are six short documentaries chronicling stories including the acquisition of land for oil exploration, the early administrative history of the region, threats to Lake Turkana, marriage customs and the role of women in the community.
We look forward to more stories from our citizen journalists.
