Trans World Radio (TWR) has finally caught up with modern technology by decommissioning its Shortwave transmission from Manzini, Swaziland to South and Central Africa covering Malawi.
TWR Malawi Board Chair Justice Esmie Chombo made the announcement Thursday in Lilongwe during a cocktail reception for its business partners and friends.
She said that TWR will now concentrate its work via its national FM work.
“Most of you here would recall the pingles either early each morning and evening. This was on Shortwave from Manzini, Swaziland. Those were the years from late 70’s all through the 80,s and 90’s when you heard the likes of Pearson Chunga.”
She said that after almost 30 years, it is imperative that TWR Malawi adjusts to reality of business and ministry.
Under the title “Beyond 30: A new Business and Ministry Approach for TWR Malawi,” the reception is a part of a briefing and recruitment exercise where TWR is setting up a Thousand Member Team (TMT) where each willing person would commit to give a minimum of 50,000 Kwacha to support God’s work in Malawi.
Chombo said that her Board has had to make tough decisions to keep its core mission of Reaching Malawi with the Word of God so that lasting fruit is produced.
“I can report here, that earlier this year, we had to downsize on operations in order to sustain the core mission. This affected some staff, programmes and commitments. And we are making great progress.”
She thanked partners and friends for the support to TWR but also appealed to government to increase advertising for private stations especially like TWR which she said has national coverage and is “a mother Christian station” amongst over 30 radio stations in the country.
Renown economist, motivational speaker and entrepreneur Henry Kachaje made a special presentation titled Wealth Prosperity, Riches, Abundance God and You. Being a Board Member for TWR, Kachaje appealed to partners to invest in God’s work. He said that finding a thousand people in Malawi each of whom giving a minimum of 50,000 Kwacha in a year can greatly help TWR make huge progress and impact more lives for this and coming times.
A similar cocktail reception is expected to be held in Blantyre before end of November.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
