Rwanda: New FM Station Coming


A new FM radio station, Amazing Grace, will hit the country's airwaves soon.

The Christian station has already been granted permission to get a radio frequency, Pastor Gregg Schoof, on of the proprietors, said during a fundraising function at Union Trade Center over the weekend.

Schoof said the station's equipment is being erected on the top of mount Jali on the outskirts of Kigali City.

When it goes on air in January 2008, Amazing Grace, will see the number of FM stations swell to 21, of which 14 are already operating while the rest have just acquired licenses.

Schoof said the station will be focusing on preaching, airing children's programme, news and great music both in English and Kinyarwanda languages.
