The Forum is being held under the Theme: Exploring the Implications of Fake News and How the Continent’s Media Leaders can Work to Safeguard Quality and Impartial Journalism.

It is being facilitated by the renowned former BBC News and Current Affairs Director, Helen Holden.

The Forum is exploring the parameters of fake news and disinformation on media reporting in the technological advancement age.

He said LNTV, already broadcasting some of BBC's quality contents produced from the Kenyan Capital by talented African Journalists, will continue the partnership and will benefit from such enriched contents.

The LBS Boss also said he has begun talks, aimed at securing top notch journalism training for LBS Journalists and Broadcasters to improve the quality of journalism at the state broadcaster.
