Madagascar: National stations get new transmission mast funded by Radio Nederland in Anosy


National stations RNM and TVM have a new transmission mast in the Anosy region funded by Radio Nederland. This news was announced by Nathalie Rabe, Minister of Communication, in a visit to Tolagnaro over the Christmas season.

Rabe said that the transmission mast will be installed this month, ahead of legislative elections in March:”The existence of this new mast will make sure that the voting results will reach Anosy quickly… The same will also happen in other regions (on the island).”

The visit allowed the Minister to discuss the communications problems of the Anosy region with the personnel of the national stations. Tolagnaro which he visited is surrounded by mountains with many villages which the new mast will now be able to reach.
