ABSTRACT

This research was carried out in Kibera in Kampala Uganda. This research examined the

role of the media in conflict management and how to handle emergencies in their

reporting.

In handling the issue of conflict management, the media has been in the front line in

highlighting the rights and concern of those affected. This includes being impartial in

their reporting of matters so that they are not seen as favoring a certain group over others,

reporting on human rights violation, reporting on the suffering of people to put into light

their plight so that they get the necessary assistance they need.

Although the media has done a lot to avert this, it is to some extent to blame for the

situation. Therefore by disseminating conflicting messages which could have fuelled the

hatred. Therefore the media should act according its role of being the watchdog of the

society so that issues like this don't arise in the future.
