Kelvin TemboI am Kelvin Tembo, a 29-year-old male independent professional journalist from Malawi. I am a holder of a Certificate in Journalism obtained in 2010 from the Malawi Institute of Journalism. I have also had special media training on covering infectious diseases by the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) in collaboration with Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (MESHA), Climate Change and Development Training by the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR), etc. I have been in the media industry since December 2011 covering health, environment, human rights, agriculture, politics and development. My work has also been featured on www.capitalradiomalawi.com, www.eufrika.org and an online fashion magazine www.welum.com. I like reporting on rural livelihoods and events. I believe in journalism being a ‘calling’ to serve the interests of the voiceless. Connect on Twitter: @kelvinvitima
