Somali Journalists Union holds Human rights Reporting Workshop for 25 Journalists in Mogadishu

Somali Journalists Syndicate (SJS) on Wednesday held first human rights reporting workshop for 25 Somali Journalists at Rayaan Halls in Mogadishu.

The training, is financially supported by  National Endowment for Democracy (NED), is a series of trainings which will be held across the country, according SJS Secretary General Abdalle Ahmed Mumin,

Human rights violations are on the rise in Somalia and Somali media do not report properly to such violations, therefore the training will help the journalists to report human rights issues through their respective media stations.

The opening remarks of the Secretary General of the Somali Journalists Syndicate (SJS) Abdalle Ahmed Mumin, urged the trainees prioritise human rights related coverage.

Journalsits at Risaala Radio are active members of the Somali Journalists Syndicate (SJS) and some of its journalists are taking part today’s training.
