Kazako launches the Kasungu community radiio

Kazako said this on Thursday when he was officially opened the radio which is to be set up in the district.

The minister said instead the station should enforce information sharing and enhance development activities around the district as well as the  surrounding areas such as Jenda in Mzimba and Mponera in Dowa.

According to him, Kasungu is known with agricultural activities hence the radio should promote that.

Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (MACRA) director general Henry Shamu appealed to Kasungu community radio station members of staff to adhere to and use broadcasting ethics to keep the radio alive, saying it would be unfortunate for MACRA officials to revoke the hard earned license.

In his remarks, Senior Chief Kaomba who is the board chair of the station hailed the initiative, saying the radio will help build coexistence between the communities of the district.

Kasungu community radio station manager Johnas Banda assured the minister and MACRA that the staff will stick to their profession.

Banda said the radio will help to educate the communities on the bad impact of rape, defilement and suicide cases which is increased in the district.

The community radio which is broadcasting at a 100 kilometer radius is the first radio station and will reach to over one million people.

A Radio Frequency, 89.0 FM was awarded in April 2016 after successfully set up and installation of the radio rooms.

One of the fast growing district in the Central Region or known as a Farming District of many crops. If one gets a plot in this district then you have all the opportunity to doing a variety of businesses but to marry one citizen lady is not easy to find one unless you meet her outside Kasungu.Siwophweka ngati Southern Region kwatengana ngati Nkhuku. Akuti kukana mwamuna ndi SAMBI.How much beautiful the girl might be this is their common language.

I do not agree on you about the women. The truth is that the Kasungu women like siphoning money from their husbands. Most of them are also lazy.

Why should they not air political programmes? Zodiak does that but he wants other radios not to do. Afraid of competition?
