Mr. Albino Okeny "is cofounder and former editor-in-chief of the Khartoum Monitor, a leading Sudanese independent daily that publishes articles concerning southern Sudan, the civil war, and peace initiatives. Currently working as a Media for Peace program officer at Panos–Eastern Africa, a branch of the London-based Panos Institute, which promotes press freedom and information exchange on issues of global concern, he has also served as director of the English Service at Radio Omdurman in Khartoum. During his fellowship, Mr. Okeny researched how journalists can cultivate political awareness in a climate of repression. He planned to write a short guide offering practical tips on how the media can educate ordinary citizens about their rights, serve as a mouthpiece for voices against autocracy, and promote a culture of debate and discussion."
