The Seventh Day Adventist Church has inaugurated a radio station in the Zambezi Region to help advance its evangelism. It is the fourth radio station the Seventh Day Adventist Church has opened in Namibia.
Zambezi Governor Alufea Sampofu has urged residents of the region to support the radio station, whose work will complement Government efforts of expanding information and communication technology.
Sampofu said at Sunday's launch that radio is an effective medium of mass communication, which reaches remote communities.
He said the Christian community radio station will help instil moral values and norms among communities in the region.
Adventist World Radio (AWR) Country Director, Reagan Malumo, said the Zambezi Adventist Community radio will broadcast over 60-kilometres radius from Katima Mulilo.
He said this will be increased to a 100-kilometre radius in the future.
AWR has radio stations at Gobabis, Otjiwarongo, Keetmanshoop and Rundu and it broadcasts virtually in Windhoek.
Plans are underway to open radio stations in Oshana and Kunene regions when frequencies become available.
