A regional media and communications conference kicks off in Nairobi on Wednesday. The conference, whose theme is Communication Research and African Development, draws speakers from East African nations and as far away as Nordic countries.

According to the convener, Mureej Mc’Ochieng’ of Multimedia University College of Kenya, scholars like Medical Services Minister Anyang’ Nyong’o, the National Council for Science and Technology Chief Executive Shaukat Abdulrazak, and Information and Communication PS Bitange Ndemo will feature in the three-day meeting.

”Besides promoting communication studies in the region, the East African Communication Association is a forum where scholars, researchers and others involved in communication studies and practice can meet and exchange information and ideas about their work,” said Prof Mureej in a brief to media houses.

Prof Abdulrazak will provide a keynote speech on the role of media in knowledge dissemination for development in Africa and Prof Nyong’o will talk of how media and communication can entrench substantive democracy in Africa in the 21st century.
