Dr. Nancy Booker former journalist and currently a Journalism Lecturer at Multimedia University, contributing to discussions during the Media Council of Kenya Training of Chief and Sub-editors on Elections Reporting held on 6th and 7th May 2017 in Machakos.

The Training of Trainers served as a platform to expose the editors to the content in the Media Council of Kenya Guidelines for Elections coverage manual with the aim of providing guidance to the methodologies to use in adult training and review reportage. Un Women Kenya in partnership with Media Council of Kenya under the Strengthening Electoral Processes in Kenya Project, is running subsequent trainings for journalists in all the counties in support of efforts at entrenching a culture of balanced and fair reporting in line with the guidelines in 2017 elections.
