Presentation and Panel Discussion: THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2017, 4:00pm-6:30pm

Is our collective capacity to distinguish between real and fake news between meaningful discussion and manufactured debate so eroded as to make the notion of “informed choice” meaningless?

Please join us for an informed and surely lively debate on how Kenya’s media and citizens can better discern fake news and fact-check campaign rhetoric and promises and what the challenge of fake news means to Kenya’s democratic prospects.

Presentation: “Trust Through Verification”— Alphonce Shiundu, Africa Check
Moderator: Dr Nancy Booker, Assistant Professor GSMC
