Whilst growing up watching TV was a luxury because parents were strict on what you would watch and also the government controlled broadcasting schedule. Despite these restraints there were programmes i still got to enjoy such U.R.T.N.A.
URTNA was comprised of the national radio and television organizations of African states that were members of the OAU. Associate members were national radio and/or television organizations from non-African countries. URTNA was committed to the development of all aspects of broadcasting in Africa. It encouraged the exchange of indigenous programming via satellite.
Through such programs i got to learn alot about Africa. To be honest in my early teen life i would spend hours tuning in on AM frequencies trying to hear different languages i could catch on the radio. It excited me to know that there were different lands out there,where perhaps there were people who shared similar interests.
It is in this light that Maisha Yetu is working with Fally Ipupa Foundation for we both have the same love for Africa and to realize the dreams of its youth.
