International Freedom of Expression

December 17, 2008

Nation Media Group, founded by His Highness Aga Khan, is the largest independent media group in East and Central Africa and is devoted to providing accurate and non-biased information to Kenyan’s, subject neither to factional, commercial, religious, or political interests. The idea of free press was very important to Aga Khan, and his ideals for the advancement of modern Kenya. This belief is shared, and demonstrated, by today’s NMG’s Editorial Director, Wangethi Mwangi.

Surely, Aga Khan and Wangethi Mwangi, would have supported 1992’s International Freedom of Expression Exchange. The network that promotes freedom of expression globally.

For a veteran journalist, for someone like Wangethi Mwangi, free press is paramount. He has been quoted saying, “The Nation Media Group has been one of the key players in the independence campaign for Kenya, and a champion of democracy in East Africa”.

I have to agree with Aga Khan: Freedom of expression shapes not only Kenya, but also the world.
