Press Release

08th November 2010

 

ARCHBISHOP NJONGONKULU NDUNGANE TO DELIVER KEY STATEMENT ON AFRICAN MEDIA & THE DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGE AT AMLF 2010

 

The African Media Leaders Forum (AMLF) is hosting its 3rd annual Forum in Yaoundé Cameroon on the 18th to 19th November 2010.

 

The AMLF brings private and independent media owners and operators into critical conversation on improving business and governance climates throughout the continent. In 2008, the first inaugural Forum was held in Dakar, Senegal with 55 participants. The number grew to 185 participants in 2009 in Lagos, Nigeria.  This year, we are expecting over 250 CEOs, Managing Directors, Publishers and other top media leaders from Africa and beyond to attend AMLF in Yaoundé.

The AMLF is the flagship project of the African Media Initiative (AMI), whose main objective is to improve the African media sector. “Through the  2010 Forum we will launch AMI’s pilot phase programmes (2011-2012).  These projects will ensure that the critical discussions at the AMLF are taken forward into solutions and strategies for the future.  It is our hope that the owners and operators assembled at the 2010 AMLF will be key players in these programmes.” said Mr. Amadou Mahtar Ba, AMI CEO and President of the AMLF.

This year’s Forum will be hosted by Spectrum Media Group, one of Africa’s largest broadcasters, headquartered in West and Central Africa.

The 2010 AMLF theme is “Funding African Media in an Age of Uncertain Business Models”. The structure of the Forum will be organized around plenary sessions and 3 working groups running simultaneously under the topics:  Financing; Technology and New Business Models; and Ethics, Leadership and Social Responsibility.

AMLF proudly announces that Archbishop Winston Hugh Njongonkulu Ndungane will deliver the key statement at a plenary session on media and the challenge of African development on November 18th.   The Most Revered Archbishop Njongo Ndungane, former Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town and Primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, is the Founder & President of the African Monitor.  The African Monitor is a pan-African not-for-profit body harnessing the voice of the continent’s civil society in monitoring and promoting the effective implementation of promises made by the international community, and Africa’s own governments, for the continent’s development.

Over the years Archbishop Ndungane has been bestowed various awards and achievements, for his lifelong commitment to placing the poor at the centre of social and economic policies and his efforts to drive change in the way leadership is exercised in Africa.  

He also served on the first South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Board after independence. “Media can be key drivers in development. The Media plays a role in informing the public and putting pressure on policy makers and implementers, to work in a manner that positively impacts on the lives of people – through highlighting issues and suggestions for their solutions. As such, the media are more than just news gatherers; they are key stakeholders in development. “Said Archbishop Njongo Ndungane

Archbishop Ndungane’s speech will cover the following questions:

  • What is the responsibility of media as a corporate and social citizen body of Africa?
  • What are the key development challenges of Africa?
  • How is African media framing these development challenges?
  • How should African media reconstitute itself in order to respond to these challenges?

“AMI is delighted to welcome Archbishop Ndungane at AMLF 2010. I strongly believe that his position as a spiritual leader, and the formidable work he has done at African Monitor, would be of tremendous inspiration to the African media community.”  Said Mr. Amadou Mahtar Ba, CEO of AMI and President of the AMLF.
