I am a forth year student at the university of Malawi Polytechnic. Am doing a research in development journalism. My area of study is in the education sector particularly in tertiary education. My focus is on the training of journalists in Malawi. Are they well equiped to report development issues in Malawi. Where is the gap interms of showcasing journalistic skill in our reporters? Can this be traced to the training itself or rather the cirruculum offered. What should be the way forward?
