WINGS Radio: Reporting in Kenya under Covid-19

Understanding the Problems and opportunities for women journalists

Mary Mwendwa, receiving award

The advent of COVID added new problems to an already increasingly precarious situation for journalists. More than 600 have been laid off since the start of the pandemic in Kenya alone, and freelancers are especially challenged by things like not having enough money to buy their own PPE. Mary Mwendwa of African Women in Media describes what is happening, over a background of her children’s activity as she works from home. Producer: Diana Wanyonyi.
