Kenya: bishop praises radio evangelisation

 Evangelization through modern means of communication is the way ahead says a Kenyan Catholic Bishop, David Kamau, an auxiliary bishop of the metropolitan archdiocese of Nairobi. Speaking at Saint Joseph the Worker Pro Cathedral, in Ngong near Nairobi on Sunday, for the third anniversary celebrations for Radio Waumini, the first-ever Catholic radio station, Bishop Kamau urged local Catholics to support the station. "While others have assisted us to take off the ground in terms of instituting the radio station, we must now move in to support it, through prayers, money and moral support, " he said. He commended those who have already done that-supporting the radio station, through the Friends of Radio Waumini program. "Our baby-Radio Waumini, which marks her third anniversary today - July 9 needs your support for it to grow" he stressed. Manager of the radio station, Reverend Father Martin Wanyoike observed that the station had already lined up some programs of development, but stressed that this would be implemented once funds are available. "We are funds-strapped, but once this is overcome, we shall be able to undertake various projects with aims to strike higher," he said. Radio Waumini broadcasts 24 hours and chief among its daily programs is Daily Devotion, Mass and Holy Rosary. It broadcast in both English and Kiswahili languages. It also relays both the English and Kiswahili news bulletin of Radio Vatican as well as EWTN programs. Radio Waumini broadcasts on 88.3 FM.
