Unity and solidarity: these twin themes chosen by the Federation of African Journalists (FAJ) for its Congress of reconciliation in Khartoum sounded like a slogan.
After two days of frank debate and elections in which candidates outnumbered posts to be filled, a new steering committee and new gender council were elected and immediately started the work. Unity and solidarity are on programme of the Federation of African Journalists agenda.
This new programme concerns all 146 countries and all five continents where the IFJ is present.
