Practicing journalists and public relation practitioners who have for long been on different paths have promised to work together and bridge the gap in information flow.
For long, journalists have accused institutional public relations officers of frustrating their work by hooding information that is supposed to be public consumption.
However during a meeting that brought together; Public Relations Association of Rwanda (PRAR) and representatives from the Association of Rwandan Journalists (ARJ), Press House, Rwanda Editors Forum (REF) and Rwanda Women Journalists Association, there was a general agreement for better cooperation between the two sister professions.
This meeting was intended to forge links and ways of having access to information without compromising either of the professions.
Addressing the participants, President of Rwanda Editors Forum Bosco Rushingabigwi said the activities of media associations in Rwanda, will embark on getting together with the Rwanda PR Association to try to address the issue of access to information in public and private institutions.
