Newspaper Visibility of Members of Parliament in Kenya
Unformatted Document Text:  NEWSPAPER VISIBILITY OF MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT IN KENYA 21 MPs; nine of them are from big tribes. Also, 67.5% of the cabinet is composed of MPs from large ethnic groups. Future studies should consider investigating the same variables in television news coverage of MPs as well as in newspaper editorials, commentaries, and opinion columns which were excluded from this study. Another potential area of future research is parliamentary proceedings which from two years ago are now covered live by the state-owned Kenya Broadcasting Corporation television.
