    This interview is about Nigeria but I'am assuming much of what he says can be applied to other African countries as far as the problems journalist face.








    This one is about the situation for journalist in Ethiopia. It's a little longer so check it out when you have some spare time.

    I think what's important about this topic is that it affects development. Can any African country develop without having a free independent news media? This is how corruption can be exposed and how foriegn aid can be effectively monitored etc. No wonder corrupt leaders seem to want to control the press when taking power.
