Muslim leaders and pastors from Christian Churches are giving a welcome boost to
weekly HIV prevention and AIDS awareness programmes broadcast by Radio Kwizera (RK)
The programme series, called Mimi na wewe tunaweza ('We can!' in Kiswahili), is proving
popular with a huge audience.
"HIV-AIDS radio programmes are listened to by many people and we have tried our best
to keep them going by involving doctors and others who show willingness to share
their testimonies, expertise and views about the pandemic," says Fr Damas Missanga
SJ, RK Director.
This includes religious leaders and Church officials. Muslim leaders have given very
good interviews, as have the Anglican Bishops and pastors who share the Church stand
on HIV-AIDS. >>>more>>
