The manager further said the coming of NPC-SS to Yei has been approved by the county government of yei because information that goes out benefits the community of the county.
However, the NPC-SS Capacity development officer said the training will equip the station staff with knowledge on how to package, produce programs that discuss issues on gender. He urged the media to take these skills seriously during their programming so that women issues are covered and the public is aware of them.
