The Internet is an essential journalistic tool. Since 2007, the Finnish VIKES foundation has trained Tanzanian journalists in e.g. more effective Internet use. In two recent years, also their Somalian colleagues have been trained in technical skills and journalistic basics such as ethics and freedom of expression.
Finnish journalist Peik Johansson has specialised in Africa-related questions and worked for VIKES since 2006. His work has given him a comprehensive insight into the reality of African journalists.
