JOURNALISTS have been urged to remain positive and foster peace ahead of the March 4 general election.
Kenya Red Cross Coast regional finance officer Shamsham Raweal yesterday said media houses have a responsibility to unite Kenyans.
Speaking at a workshop on conflict reporting in Mombasa, Raweal urged journalists to observe their code of conduct to ensure there is no conflict arising from media content.
"This is our country and media is a strong tool for agenda setting. We need to relay the correct information to the public to ensure there is no conflict of interest," he said. Raweal called on residents at the Coast to observe peace and co-existence as the country heads into the general elections.
