Ambassador Njoroge also calls on the media to encourage the citizens to express themselves and share their expectations on the peace process.

He was speaking during the closing of a two-day training of journalists on the Khartoum peace agreement on Friday.

“To your vital task to shine a light on the peace process, enabling you to explain in a layman’s terms the complicated and akin language of politics and diplomacy. I want you to establish and adhere to a level of objective truth and avoid the modern trend of appealing to emotions.”

The training was organized and supported by Journalists for Human Rights and JMEC.
