8:40 Barry Coates – Dadaab Refugee Camp
Oxfam NZ’s executive director Barry Coates has this week been visiting the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. Dadaab is the largest refugee camp in the world, with a population of 450,000 people, mostly from nearby Somalia, who have fled war, drought and famine in their homeland. Barry talks to Chris about what he saw at Dadaab, as well as about Oxfam’s work in the region.
Mediawatch looks at how the New Zealand Herald was punished by parliament in a way that is “outrageous” – according to its editor; and there's further fallout from the day the PM became DJ. And with the quarter-finals looming, Mediawatch also looks at how one man's groin strain gutted a nation.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
