about this item

When Jennifer Bakody steps off the plane in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2004, she walks right into the hardest and most inspiring job an idealistic young journalist from Nova Scotia could ever imagine. Six years of war involving eight countries and several million deaths has just ended in a ceasefire. Two weeks later, Bakody finds herself two thousand kilometres up the Congo River in the heart of the jungle, managing a small UN-backed radio station. Radio Okapi Kindu tells Jennifer’s story, as well as that of the team of hard-working local reporters determined to cover the country’s rapid march towards elections. Can one small station known as the "frequency of peace" stand the strain of maintaining its editorial rigour when so much is at stake?
