African Centre for Media Excellence announces its third annual lecture under the theme “Media and Politics in Africa”. The main purpose of the lecture series is to explore the relationship between media and politics amidst changing technological, demographic, and political circumstances on the continent.
Mr Eric Chinje, a former World Bank spokesman for Africa and now the chief executive officer of the African Media Initiative, will deliver this year’s lecture on the afternoon of Wednesday, 7 December, at the Golf Course Hotel in Kampala. Mr Chinje’s lecture will focus on communication as the missing link in social transformation in Africa, and examine the role of the media in development and its ability to effectively moderate social conversations.
