dc.description.abstractGatekeeping is an area in the media that usually draws controversy due to the limited understanding that the general public has of the processes in the print media.

Refugees were selected because the complexities that surround migration and as a topic, can easily be sensationalized. To get a better understanding of the gatekeeping function, the researcher did a content analysis of the framing of reports carried from 15t July to 3151 of December on refugees from the Horn of Africa and compared the findings with the opinions of key informants using semi structured interviews. The results indicate the role of gatekeeping plays in setting the agenda for national discourse in the Daily Nation in the period under reviewen_US
