KARONGI – In its bid to extend its coverage, Radio Rwanda is now broadcasting from the two districts of Karongi and Rutsiro.
This program kicked off in Rwamagana and Kayonza districts before moving to Gicumbi and Rulindo, three months ago.
According to Willy Rukundo, the Acting Director General of the National Office of Information (ORINFOR), the rotation programme is meant to help bring the media closer to the local population.
“This action also acts as a bridge between the local leaders and those they serve. It helps to harmonise the relationship between the local population and the media,” Rukundo said.
When the residents were given a chance to access the microphone outside the studio, they asked their respective mayors who appeared on a live talk show to explain why some development projects in the two districts stalled.
Most of the residents seemed excited and many gathered at ORINFOR offices in Karongi district to meet their favourite presenters.
