  • Description

    AN EXPERIMENTAL COMMUNITY TELEVISION AND RADIO LISTENING AND VIEWING CENTRE RECENTLY OPENED IN CONGO-KINSHASA.

    REPRESENTATIVES OF THE CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT AND THE POPULAR REVOLUTION MOVEMENT PARTY GATHERED AT MENKAO, A SMALL RIVERSIDE VILLAGE ABOUT 25 MILES (40 KM) FROM KINSHASA, WHERE THE CENTRE IS SITUATED, FOR THE INAUGURATION CEREMONY.

    THE PARTY WAS MET BY CROWDS OF DANCING INHABITANTS. INFORMATION MINISTER JEAN JACQUES KANDE PERFORMED THE OPENING, CUTTING THE SYMBOLIC TAPE.

    AS SPEAKERS AT THE CEREMONY EXPLAINED, THE CENTRE WILL ALLOW INFORMATION MEDIA AUTHORITIES TO STUDY THE TYPE OF PROGRAMME BEST SUITED TO THE POPULATION.

    IT WILL HOUSE TWO TELEVISIONS AND ONE WIRELESS SET, WHICH WILL BE MAINTAINED BY A LOCAL TEACHER. THE EXPERIMENT IS ALSO EXPECTED TO HELP IN THE DIRECTION OF FUTURE SCHOOL BROADCASTS.

    AS AN ADDITIONAL BENEFIT, THE COMMUNITY CENTRE WILL ALSO SERVE AS A SCHOOL FOR THE VILLAGE, WHERE SCHOOL BUILDINGS ARE IN POOR REPAIR.
