An analysis of existing evidence was presented by Prof. Ogenga of the Rongo Univeristy and Director of the PeaceMakers Corps Foundation. 

The ultimate aim was to identify what evidence exists and what additional evidence is needed. Furthermore, the Listening Dialogue was to enable make decisions about how evidence should be used in the region to influence policies and good practice.

“These evidence reveal that peace journalism was actually useful in mobilising people and reaching out to rebels and child soldiers who were more than 22000, appealing for them tom abandon war significantly weakening the LRA and consequently ending the LRA Conflict.”

“As a person of the media background, I can closely relate to what has been presented as I have experienced it when covering news content because many people are fearing to express views about certain topics. They have become selective on what they share.”
