Steven Boshya Mutangana is a journalist working with Radio Rwanda. He says his work days never have a fixed program since reporting or assignments can come in any time. Below he shares what his typical day is like.
I wake up at about 5:30a.m and pray. I rush to the bathroom and shortly have breakfast.
At 6:30, I leave for work to make sure that I get there before 7. As soon as I get to work, I silently say a prayer before I start on the day’s program.
I then check on different websites as I also listen to the radio for news to get updates.
Depending on the day’s program, I then head to the field.
Work in the field goes on until I am done with stories. I get back to office to work on them.
This includes typing and editing voices so that I hand in my work when it’s the real product expected of me.
Work goes on until I believe I have completed as planned for the day. At about 8p.m, I head home to spend the evening with my wife and child.
I follow the news on many radio stations. I have supper at around 9 and pray before I get to bed at around 9:30p.m.
