News coverage and its limits in Burundi

News coverage and its limits in Burundi
 
Gitega, Burundi, January 15, 2016 AFP/STRINGER

In this week's African Media, Rfi's Clea Broadhurst looks at the difficulties of reporting on the ground in Burundi. News is in short supply in Burundi after several radio stations were shut down eight months ago, following the attempted coup in May 2014. Today, most station managers and reporters have fled into exile. The journalists who stayed on hardly ever go out because of a climate of terror and a fear of being arrested or worse. However, a collective of journalists emerged spontaneously within 48 hours of the destruction of the radio stations last year. SOS Media Burundi is now one of the only information outlets for those in search of news.
