Marvis Birungi

Marvis worked as senior stringer for Voice of America (VOA) in Juba. She joined The Niles project in October 2009. Marvis was a reporter for The Citizen newspaper and the Sudan Catholic Radio Network. She also contributed to the Juba Post and to Liberty FM as a freelancer.Many of Marvis’ stories focus on minority rights, with a growing interest in shedding light on the rights and struggles of the LGBTQ community members. She believes that the role and importance of media is still undervalued, especially in South Sudan and “it is this kind of challenge which motivates me,” Marvis says.
