Ozone, climate change and witchcraft
Ugandan and Malawian journalists, Gerald Tenywa and Frazer Potani, were recently awarded prizes at the UNEP Ozone Africa Media Awards, for their work to raise awareness of ozone depletion and climate change. Gerald's prize-winning article focussed on the banning of old fridges in Kampala, in order to prevent leakage of ozone-depleting gases. Frazer received a special prize for his article 'When climate change is witchcraft', which illustrates how traditional beliefs can be a barrier to action, in the context of responding to unreliable rainfall. The journalists explain more to fellow prize-winner, Busani Bafana.
