Mwanza radio fights domestic violence

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

AFYA Radio FM, which is based in Mwanza, advocates for psychological, social and physical well-being of residents in the Lake Regions. It has recently introduced Citizen Journalism training for domestic workers in a quest to boost coverage on domestic violence.

Some media experts describe citizen journalism as a new philosophy which aims at training ordinary people to report events happening in their communities. It is another way of creating whistleblowers.

Speaking to the 'Daily News on Saturday' in an exclusive interview, the Director of the FM radio, Dr Joseph Kavit, said that besides the programmes addressing social issues that can bring psychological problems that often culminate in mental disorder, it continues focusing on domestic violence.
