In emerging countries and economies, perhaps one of the most important assets is free press. Independent media give citizens access to unbiased reporting and opinion, free from governmental propaganda. One such example is veteran journalist Wangethi Mwangi , Editorial Director at with Kenya's largest media conglomerate, National Media Group.
Wangethi Mwangi is very aware of the role of NMG in Kenyan politics and the development of democracy in Africa: "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."
In his role as Editorial Director at National Media Group, Wangethi Mwangi heads Kenya's leading newspaper, The Daily Nation, as well as the premier multi-media house in East Africa in both electronic and print platforms.
