Kenyan Journalists To Play Part in Shaping US Foreign Policy in Kenya

Capital FM presenters Cess Mutungi and Maqbul Mohammed, alongside Ghetto Radio’s DJ Prince will join journalists from the Washington Post, New York Times, and the Associated Press in spreading United States’ influential policies in Kenya.
This is according to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) report, USAID-Kenya Strategic Communications Plan 2012-2013.

The report reads, “Build relationships with bloggers such as Bankelele, The Young Agroprenuer, Kenyanfarmer and DJs of popular radio programmes such as DJ Prince of Ghetto Radio, Cess and Maqbul of Capital FM who can weave brief mentions of USAID results in their patter. One must regularly e-mail, SMS or tweet brief facts, or stories for them to use.”  
“Engage a few key international journalists, such as the Economist’s Africa Baobab blog, the Washington Post’s Sudarsan Raghaven, the New York Times Jeffrey Gettleman and AP’s Jason Straziuso in following our progress on targeted issues.”
