The Inter-University Media Challenge has introduced new voices to a larger audience, and this way we have developed the next generation of journalists. The young journalists at Makerere Business Institute (MBI) received mobile journalism (MOJO) and youth participatory radio trainings on 18th and 19th August 2022. They also auditioned in news anchoring, live news reporting and TV presenting under the “One Minute of Fame,” on Saturday 20th August, 2022.
