  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: In Kenya, Mr. Oginga Odinga, the leader of the disbanded opposition party, the Kenya People's Union, has called on African journalists to be increasingly aware of their responsibilities. Speaking to Kenyan newsmen at a Press Club meeting in Nairobi on Tuesday (5 April), Mr. Odinga, whose former party was banned said that since independence the government attitude towards the press had been quite liberal.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Odinga criticised the Kenyan press for what he called "self-imposed censorship", questioning its motives and adding that censorship for selfish reasons was not legitimate. He also spoke about the role of the press in education.

    Odinga's address follows a conference in Libya last month calling for the establishment of an African and Arab news agency to create closer links between the areas.
