FM radio transmitter shows Government's effort - Minister
Luanda, Luanda – The Angolan Social Communication minister, Carolina Cerqueira, said Friday in Luanda that the inauguration of the State-run “Rádio Nacional de Angola” broadcasting station’s largest FM radio transmitter shows the Government’s effort and its investments in the sector of communication, particularly concerning the expansion of the signal. Carolina Cerqueira was speaking to journalists after the inauguration of the station. According to the minister, the transmitter with high power FM relays will lead to an improvement of signal in Luanda province and the capital’s remote municipalities of Icolo e Bengo and Kissama. Highlighting the coincidence that the station is inaugurated on May 25, Africa Day, the minister said that since the oral message has a great power in the unity of people, the radio will continue to help bring peoples closer. “I think that the radio, in this historical moment the country is going through with the nearing of general elections as announced by the head of the Executive, for August 31, will permit both to take the news to our populations and bring into the public space their aspirations, their needs, their dreams about a new, developed, prosperous and peaceful Angola,” she stated. Carolina Cerqueira expressed the hope that the new, high technology and expensive equipment will serve for more work for Angola and for all Angolans, regardless of the part of the country where they live. The ceremony was witnessed by high ranking officials of the Social Communication Ministry, representatives of public media organs and guests.
