In his opening remarks, the Executive Secretary of the MHC said that leadership today is commentary to make Africa the best press for every one so that this workshop will enable journalists to fulfill their mandate.

“It is important to recalculate this habit, cultures of good governance, and leadership skills among our media leaders so that we see media serving its purpose responsively and delivering its mandate to the public effectively”, said Mugisha

He also urged journalists to join efforts for making media industry a viable one.

DR.Roukaya Kasenally, the Director of Programs at AMI, says that leadership principles and guidelines will guide media owners and managers in maintaining a focus on ethical, social, and environment responsibilities that come with doing business, to foster a culture of transparency, good governance and accountability.

The workshop gathers experts from African Media Initiatives and senior media practitioners, editors and managers, from different media organs in Rwanda.
