New radio station planned in Congo DR

Members of the Belgian armed forces in the Congolese province of West-Kasai are planning to set up a radio station to inform the local population about why they are there, and what they are doing. Technical and editorial staff will be recruited locally. This isn’t the first such radio station operated by the Belgian forces. Earlier there was a similar station, Radio Rafiki, in Eastern Congo.
There are about 30 Belgian troops in Kananga, the capital of West Kasai in the centre of DR Congo, where they are giving training to the Congolese army.
