Two MISA Malawi trainers are part of the three-member team of trainers facilitating a five-day virtual training on voter-centred election reporting.

The trainers, Anderson Fumulani and Gregory Gondwe are part of DW Akademie-trained MISA Malawi trainer pool. The third trainer is Levi Katire of Namibia Community Broadcasters Network.

Participants to the workshop are experienced Zambian journalists who are expected to be exposed to Voter-Centred Election Reporting module, one of the MISA Malawi Training Centre modules.

Speaking during the opening of the training on Monday, July 26, 2021, Fumulani said the participants should expect exciting five days.

“The idea is to share with you the contents of the module for your adoption, modification and use in your different settings. There were sentiments [among the participants] indicating that most of these trainings are a cliché. But the participants will find this one very engaging and interesting. The focus should be both pre and post-election reporting,” Fumulani said.

Gondwe said the training is not an ordinary kind of training they have known for years.

“By the end of Friday, you will agree with us that what we will have delivered is not what you have always done in the past. This training is 30 percent theory and 70 percent practical,” Gondwe said.

Convened by Panos in Zambia and financially supported by DW Akademie, the training is part of regional journalism education that MISA Malawi has been promoting in partnership with DW Akademie.

This is not the first time for Fumulani and Gondwe to be involved in the training of journalists outside Malawi as they were also involved in the training of community journalists in Namibia and  Zambia in 2020.
