Burundi sports journalists receive vocational training after five years

The Association of Sports Journalists (AJSB) has organized since July 31 a three-day training to build the capacities of sports journalists.

Liliane Nshimirimana: “We need professional journalists in sports”

Liliane Nshimirimana, AJSB chairperson, says the training is organized five years after sports journalists have not received any training while many new sports journalists have been recruited.

She hopes that this training will increase the capacity of these journalists. “We have realized that many Burundians follow sports news while sports journalists have not received capacity building trainings over the past five years,” says Nshimirimana.

She believes new journalists need to receive capacity building trainings. “We need professional journalists in sports” she says.
