The East African Community (EAC) will, next month, recognise journalists who have been keen on
reporting and promoting regional integration.
The winners of the EAC Media Award Competition 2010 will be announced during the 4th East African Media Summit scheduled for next month in Nairobi.
According to the EAC publicist, Owora Richard Othieno, preparations for the media summit are
already in high gear.
“We intend to bring together over 200 media stakeholders from the region to discuss the role of
media in the integration process,” he said.
The summit will be held under the theme: “claiming the next decade - An EAC Agenda.”
Juma Mwapachu, the EAC Secretary is expected to open the summit.
At the summit, leading media experts and owners will make presentations, which will be
augmented by seasoned panellists on regional integration, media and trade related issues.
