When Words were Weapons

When violence broke out in the final days of 2007 after a bitterly contested election in Kenya, Internews responded within days, working with journalists who were trying and failing to make sense of the unprecedented post-election conflict that swept across their country.

This report details the projects that Internews conducted during the past five and a half years aimed at training the media in conflict sensitive journalism approaches. From Mission Possible (2008) and Reporting for Peace (2008-2009), through Land & Conflict Sensitive Journalism (2010-2013), Free and Fair Media (2011-2013), and Talk Check (2013), Internews trained some 750 journalists, using its conflict sensitive journalism and follow-up mentoring methodology geared to the Kenyan context.

Above all, the report tells the stories of the journalists who were determined to report on the elections and conflict, and the critical role they played as members of Kenya’s media throughout the political transitions over the last five years.
