Work at Sifa FM Kakuma, Transworld Radio Kenya’s latest frequency 90.7MHz site has made huge strides. So far with the help of the local men and women, the fencing of the property has been completed.

The two blue containers that were fabricated to form a live studio and working space by a partner construction organisation have been painted in our corporate colour. Both the containers have already been delivered to the site in Kakuma and set on the foundation.

The containers thereafter will have the roof constructed to help regulate temperature, as Kakuma exhibit high temperatures. Purchasing of the studio and office equipment in preparation for the kick-off the live transmission is ongoing.

It was our expectation that the project will be complete by Mid-March dedication take place in the first week of April 2020. However, due to the interruption of Convid-19 pandemic, the project will take a little longer to complete. Once the mast building has been done, equipment installed, personnel recruitment finalized, it will give way to the testing of the signal and final launching of the new Sifa FM 90.7 FM Kakuma Station. Thank you very much for your prayers and facilitation towards this great work in Kakuma.
