Politics of the Pocket Deny Women Media Coverage

Three weeks ago as I listened to two women politicians in Tanzania lament how journalists have abandoned them to cover their male counterparts who were offering handsome allowances; I knew we have a lot of work to do.

Their tribulations were happening at time when Tanzania prepares to vote into parliament and civic wards their preferred candidates at the end of this month (30 October 2010).

It is also happening at a time when the role of the media in propelling some of the candidates into power is becoming very critical.
