Eswatini celebrates World Radio Day

By Khulile Thwala

Radio is a tool to disseminate accurate information to people. This was the message shared on the Eswatini Broadcasting Information Service (EBIS) current affairs show during a programme called Letishisako, to commemorate World Radio Day held annually on February 13.

The Eswatini Communication Commission (ESCCOM) also highlighted the importance of radio, stating that information shared accordingly and procedurally made radio an educational tool for the people.

To celebrate this day, EBIS will be hosting a roadshow at Mpaka where they aim to commemorate the day with residents. According to EBIS Director Sabelo Dlamini, residents of the area are invited to join in on celebrations of the significant milestone in the world of radio.

The United Nations (UN) Eswatini also commemorated the day by stating that radio was a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for promoting peace.

Proclaimed in 2011 by the Member States of UNESCO, and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 as an International Day, February 13 became World Radio Day (WRD). The theme for the 12th edition of World Radio Day, celebrated on February 13, 2023, is “Radio and Peace”.
