MINUTES OF THE CCP MEETING HELD AT OXFAM OFFICES, SHELTER AFRIQUE HOUSE ON 13/06/08
1. CCP on KBC radio & KBC television
KBC radio and KBC television have agreed to host 4 people (2 for radio & 2 for TV) from CCP in an interactive programme. The following topics have been suggested for discussion; Resettlement, Amnesty, and Peace-building.
The sub-committee will approach available CCP core group members to see whether they can host the show. Concerned Kenyan Writers are willing to avail one or two people to accompany CCP during the show.
2. Conflict Sensitive Journalism
The radio stations especially the vernacular ones need to be sensitive when reporting on post election violence issues. They need to practise responsible journalism and exercise restraint when dealing with sensitive issues.
There is no feedback yet from the Media Council or Media Owner’s Association, however the Ministry of Information is waiting for the ICT Bill to be debated in parliament before they can enforce any media laws.
3. Nation wide Prayer meeting
‘Healing Day’ is the name that was suggested for the nation wide prayer meeting day. The committee will work on a budget and programme for the day and CCP will handle the high profile invites.
August 3rd is the tentative date suggested the Nation wide prayer meeting. The committee will hold a larger meeting on the 25th of June where various stakeholders will be present, and as such they are appealing for a meeting venue for this day (50 pax).
