Senegal President Macky Sall will chair a heads of state roundtable at this year’s African Media Leaders Forum (AMLF) to be held in Dakar on November 8-9.

It was not immediately clear how many heads of state were expected to participate in the roundtable but a conservative number of four was offered.

Another innovation this year is a public debate on “Media and Citizenship” organised in partnership with the Council for the Development of Social Sciences in Africa (CODESRIA) at the Cheikh Anta Diop University on November 7.

Organisers said the debate would act as an important curtain raiser to AMLF 2012 with the aim of engaging the public and linking them to this year’s forum theme, Africa 3.0: Strengthening Media and Governance through Citizens’ Engagement and Innovation.
