Accra, Oct. 13,
GNA – The management and staff of the Atinka Media village, have been commended
for being able to effectively combine their mandate of educating, informing and
educating the public on issues of public interest.

Mr. Kofi
Yeboah, General Secretary of the Ghana Journalists Association, made the
commendation at the launch of Season Two, of Atinka TV’s Kronkron reality show.

He said the
media had the mandate to educate, entertain and inform, and added that the show
was a typical example of the key mandate of the media.

Mr. Yeboah
encouraged the station to continue innovating such educative programmes, and
also strive to remain a shining example of good media work.

Mr. Albert
Kwabena Dwumfour, Managing Director of Atinka Media Village, said the Atinka
Media Village had decided to use Kronkron Season 2 to promote sanitation.

He said the
intention of his outfit was to particularly discourage the use of plastics,
which was creating so many environmental problems.

Mr. Dwumfour
said there was the need to protect the environment, by encouraging the use of
paper bags instead of poly bags.

He said bands
consisting of persons with disability would also be automatically qualified to
the eviction stage of the competition.

“This is
in line with the Atinka Media Village’s vision of creating equal opportunity
for all Ghanaians,” Mr. Dwumfour said.

Kronkron is a
worship-based singing competition to create a platform for bands to compete in
the area of Christian worship.

The concept has
been created to lead the way in properly defining Christian music.
