KEEP ALL WOMEN OFF THE BATTLEFIELD TO MITIGATE RAPE AS A WEAPON OF WAR

KEEP ALL WOMEN OFF THE BATTLEFIELD TO MITIGATE RAPE AS A WEAPON OF WARThe above quotation from an article posted by Jonathan Talbot on the Peace and Collaborative Network titled ‘News Release from Inclusive Security: The US Government Should Lead on Empowering Women’, has influenced to write this comment.Yes, it is true rape has been used as a weapon of war. However, war is heavily facilitated by the gun and often the rapists use this weapon to force their victims from resisting successfully.…See More

INTERNATIONAL ARMS TRADE A CHALLENGE TO WORLD PEACE

INTERNATIONAL ARMS TRADE A CHALLENGE TO WORLD PEACEThe New York Times a US based newspaper today carried a breaking news story by Jeffrey Gettleman and Mohammed Ibrahim filed from NAIROBI, Kenya on their website that gives the details of fighting that killed “at least half a dozen people” in Mogadishu Somalia. As seen in the quotation bellow, the reporters, perhaps unaware that the kidnap of one western aid worker was a less serious issue than the dozen people who died in the fighting, may…See More

PALESTINIAN?ISRAELI CONFLICT- ALTERNATIVE APPROACH FOR PEACE.

I read carefully Patrick Mac Manus’ article Motives of British Politicians: A Tragedy for Palestine where he attempts to explain why Britain was behind the Balfour Declaration of 1917 that is considered today the origin of the Israeli as a nation in the Middle East. In his article he writes “what British leaders wanted …in November 1917 was to win World War I - - all other goals were secondary.”Yes. The fact is there was some benefit that Britain definitely as sure to get by helping the…See More

Peace - The Inside Story

"thanks for posting this. As i watched it I realised that it lacked one vital element. The recognition of God the Almighty Creator of all. Does the maker of this film recognise the exixtence of God or not?"

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I was born in Taita Taveta District, Coast Province Kenya in 1967 and grew under the care of my parents Joyce Kishuke and the late Alphaeus Kishuke. At the age of 13 I joined Bura Girls Boarding secondary school I and left with in 1984. On completion of my A level in 1986, at Matuga Girls High School in Kwale District Coast province, I taught English, History and CRE Ngangao Secondary school Taita Taveta, till 1989 When I joined the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) for a Diploma in Journalism shortly after marrying Dr. Mshilla Meshack Maghanga with whom I am a happy parent of five= three girls and two boys.
At KIMC I developed a strong liking for the Broadcast media and for that reason I worked tooth and nail to stay at the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation possible employee list when I finally joined the News department as an intern in 1990. This earned me a job in the department on 1st April 1991. I never will forget the joy that I felt when I got my employment letter on that day. I did all my assignments ranging from reporting news in Nairobi city and its surburbs to editing and translating news scripts for radio and tv news, to directing TV newscasts. I left the Corporation when I joined the Council of the Anglican Provinces briefly before moving with my family to Gulu Northern Uganda where I lecture Communication skills and Kiswahili Language. Above all my experience ever since I came to Gulu in 2002 at the heights of the LRA war with the government, has taught me to do everything I could to help those around me enjoy some peace. I saw children suffer so much that I realized how important Peace in any country can be even to the very families of those who would threaten others with death at times of peace.

This was especially when I joined the Internews Network and moved across the region to witness how young youth with utterly no skills in news gathering and little education and exposure, struggled to tell their own sad story of abduction of their loved ones, some of them after having been once or even severally abducted by rebels. All this happened as able experienced and trained journalists across the world for reasons best explained by themselves stayed away from this hot news spot. I realized that my journalism skills alone were not enough to make the difference I desired for the suffering for even I myself feared to visit some sites because of guns. Here I saw the need more that ever before to try the much I could and contribute to the course of peace in a non violent way. I have since advanced my education to a Post Graduate Diploma in conflict Management and Peace studies and am now doing my Masters in conflict Transformation at the same Gulu University. I have been involved as a volunteer in a Conflict and Peace Assessment Research in Karamoja region where I also got deeper intuition on why I must do something in the rest of my life to address peaceful means to conflict resolution.

Hellen: Thanks for saying hello. It's great to connect with someone with so much experience in journalism in your region. We are gearing up to try to get broad coverage of a call for the US government to make strong commitments to UNSCR 1325 in late October. Would you have any thoughts for getting that kind of coverage in Uganda or Kenya? Are you still involved with InterNews?
