Uganda: Vision to Start Luganda FM Radio


Vision Group is to launch a new radio station to broadcast in Luganda, the chief executive, Robert Kabushenga, announced on Friday. Based at the company headquarters in Industrial Area in Kampala, the radio station will broadcast on 100.5 FM. Kabushenga said the company had so much information for Luganda readers that could not be published in the 24 pages allocated to the Bukedde newspaper.

"For the past 14 years, we have been serving Luganda readers through Bukedde. We think it is now time to switch our experience from Bukedde to broadcasting in Luganda," he said. The station will be on air in the next four months. The company's other radio station, Vision Voice (94.8 FM), hit the airwaves in October last year.
