New postings have been made, documenting and giving feedback from the more practical sessions of yesterday. Read more from the workshop participants’ blogs. Here’s the account of Ratifa Baranyikwa, foreign news editor of Tanzania Daima newspaper. And here are some comments from Edwin Mpokasye, lecturer at Dar es Salaam School of Journalism.
For an even deeper and academic approach on what we need online journalism for, see the posting of Madam Nancy Mwendamseke, head of mass communication department at Tumaini University Dar es Salaam College.
Part of the topic was to add links to the stories, and Jacqueline Maro, assistant news editor of Upendo FM, is surely breaking the record with the amount of links. Her commentary is in Kiswahili, which in my opinion is just wonderful. Because if the internet shall have a relevance in Tanzania, the contents must be in the language of the people. Soma zaidi also from Lilian Timbuka, editor of the Catholic weekly newspaper Kiongozi, and Albert Kilalah, principal of Time School of Journalism.
For funny links, you can go to the blog of Abraham Makinda, journalist from the Uwazi weekly newspaper, previously famous for its a bit sensational reporting.
