Rwandese radio to hit airwaves next month

If Busoga, Buganda, Teso, Bunyoro and many other tribes can get radio stations then so can Banyarwanda!
The 24th tribe of Uganda – yes they’re Ugandans, see the constitution article 10 (a) – will also be listening to a radio station that broadcasts in a language they understand best and it’s all thanks to Frank Gashumba.
True, that’s the Gashumba we’re talking about; however, this time we shall avoid the Aisha Nabukeera issue and focus on the radio station he has invested in Shs420m.
Gashumba, who is a Rwandese himself, said the station to be called Citizen FM will go on air next month.
Ace producer Steve Jean has been helping him with studio set up and now they have started recruiting presenters and other employees.
The studios are situated on Kiwewa Close on Naguru Hill and Gashumba said they would first cover Kampala, Masaka, Mubende, Kiboga, Luweero, Rakai and Nakasongola before going countrywide.
“This (Citizen FM) will be the CBS of Rwandese,” said Gashumba.
The station is one of the many enterprises under Mali Group of Companies where Gashumba is the CEO.
