Nairobi (Agenzia Fides) – By 2020 there will be 20 Catholic radio stations in Kenya. This is laid down in the 2016-2020 plan approved by the Commission for Social Communications/Waumini Communications of the Episcopal Conference of Kenya.
According to a statement sent to Agenzia Fides the strategic plan includes the development of a “strong media community in the field of information technology and communications across the whole country”.
The New Catholic radios will help the process to extend evangelization in Kenya by broadening the base of the 12 million Catholic Kenyans. “We want a social and spiritual transformation of the people, we want to see a transformation of the human person”, said Mgr. Joseph Obanyi, Bishop of Kakamega and Chairman of the Episcopal Commission for Social Communications, when he addressed the leaders of the Catholic radio.
Waumini Communications, the body responsible for social communications of the Episcopal Conference of Kenya, founded in 2012, reaches 5 million people largely through seven radios distributed in dioceses across the Country. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 06/08/2015)
