Nairobi, Tangaza Univesity, March 25th 2015: Born in South Sudan, Fr. Lounoi Santino is a priest with a passion for journalism, specifically in Radio Production. His hardworking and love for Radio Production is reflected in his academic performance. He is the best student in ISC first year, an award he got on 25 March, on Tangaza Day.
Asked whether it is important to study journalism as a priest, Fr. Santino replied with a smile; “Of course, we need media to air the teachings of the church.” He argues that only after one had studied the ethics and techniques of journalism can one be convince of using it.
He hoped to return to South Sudan, in the Diocese of Torit, after his studies, to pass on the learning he had gained in ISC. He desires to curb the much spending of money on hiring people outside South Sudan to train the South Sudanese about Media and Journalism.
