Morri in the studio at Radio Bakhita broadcasting around Juba with CAFOD's support

Morri Charles Francis is 24 years old and a journalist for Catholic radio station Radio Bakhita in Sudan.

Morri says: “The things I love doing best at the radio is being a presenter, a news anchor,  producing programs, and writing news. It’s rare for one person to enjoy all of that, but I do!”

Southern Sudan faces a referendum over independence in January 2011. Radio Bakhita plays a crucial role in raising awareness about the referendum and encouraging people to discuss the issues at stake.

Morri explains: “The are only a few journalists in Sudan and information that should reach the people doesn’t, so there is a big gap to educate citizens about their rights and responsibilities and be messengers of peace.”
