Kenya published its first magazine with the mandate to promote the exchange of knowledge and information, the intellectual dialogue and to facilitate the formulation of national, regional and international policies in the fields of education, science, culture and communication and information.
The magazine was published on Friday by the Kenyan National Commission for the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (KNATCOM).
In a speech given by Dr. Joyce Kinyanjui of the Ministry of Education at the Nairobi hotel read on his behalf that the magazine will act as a catalyst for knowledge sharing and the information clearinghouse will be a powerful tool and platform for sharing great ideas from the education sector.
The CS noted that the Ministry of Education recognizes the very important role KNATCOM is playing in fulfilling the mandate of the United Nations Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) mandate in the fields of science, culture, educational communication and information in Kenya.
“UNESCO is known for its great contributions and efforts to bring peace in the minds of men and women not only in education, but also in science, culture, communication and the information sector,” said Magoha.
He added that UNESCO is the intellectual organ of the Brotherhood of the United Nations (UN), producing a wide variety of information related to the promotion of peace, intellectual cooperation and sustainable development.
Prof. Magoha praised KNATCOM as a multidisciplinary agency that gave her niche in the dissemination and generation of new knowledge in order to support political reforms, to contextualize friends relevant to Kenya and to establish relevant cooperations and partnerships in order to improve the livelihoods of Kenyans.
Rose Ngugi, CEO of the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA), noted that the journal could be one of the ways its researchers can use to disseminate more of their research.
“We do quite a bit of research that has economic policy directions and the journal could be one of the opportunities our researchers can use,” said Ngugi.
The chairman of the board of directors of KNATCOM, Amatsimbi Misigo, has recognized the UNESCO as the standard setter in the world. This is one of the reasons for wanting to be a leader in research, advice and partnership and to share your results with the outside world.
Misigo thanked the board for the idea of ââthe magazine and asked for support for the continuation and publication of the magazine.
