Mr. Nandemu Barasa at The Jomo Kenyaata International Airport
West Fm Senior Editor and presenter Mr. Nandemu Barasa, who was on a two weeks media training at The Hague, has jetted back to the country.
Nandemu, arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at around 6:20am today, alongside other 15 Kenyan journalists who were training.
On his arrival, he said he was humbled for having been among the selected Kenyan journalists from recognized media outlets across the country to get the training.
He said he has acquired more skills, insights and deep understanding of the Rome Statute that established the International Criminal Court (ICC) where four Kenyans are facing charges of crimes against humanity.
The four Kenyans are former Public Service boss Francis Muthaura, Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Eldoret North Mp William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua arap Sang.
The ten day media training focused on factual reporting on ICC related issues ahead of the ICC judges’ ruling on whether the Kenyan cases will start in September or after March 2013.
The media training was organized by the Outreach Unit, PIDS within the ICC.
Kenyan journalists were also facilitated by International Commission of Jurists, (ICJ) in conjunction with the ICC and the main objective of the training was to train journalists so that they can report factual news on ICC proceedings.
Chief of the PIDS Sonia Robia called on journalists to take the training seriously and focus on factual reporting of the proceedings at the ICC.
She said some journalists might have been reporting wrongly arguing that the training will assist them fully on covering the proceedings.
