KAHAWA AU CHAI SIKU NJEMA
& HAPA NA PALE PROGRAMMES
These two programmes are aired in the morning from 6.20 - 9.00 a.m. They are among the most popular programmes of Radio Tumaini. Kahawa au Chai siku Njema programme is a magazine programme, with a variety of items including Africa News. It includes also memorial events that happened on the same date years ago. Our listeners are very much interested in this programme and we intend to improve it. In Kahawa au Chai, people listen to African News, and memorial events of the date (day), sports news, brief health news, a selected thematic issues of the day and weather information.
Together with Kahawa au Chai, Hapa na Pale follows just after the latter programme. Hapa na pale is aired everyday from 8.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. In this programme, people get the opportunity to listen to world news, local news, feature stories, cartoons and sports from various newspapers. This programme helps those who cannot afford to buy daily newspapers. Thus, the programme aims at enabling our listeners to keep abreast with what is happening in our country and the world at large.
These two programmes need to be expanded to extend our news coverage as well as doing more research on important historical events that merit.
The objectives of the two programmes are to inform our listeners particularly those who, for on reason or another do not get daily newspapers, local and international, have us access to journals or simply have access to the international media and other pertinent sources of important information.
News and information's normally collected from various sources, including government and other news media, internet, magazines attending seminars, meetings, and workshops etc. Sometimes we invite some people for timeinterviews in our studios.
These programmes have proven to be very informative and educative to our listeners. We wish to improve and expand them. However, we are constrained with the requisite financial resources. In view of that, we are stretching our hands to our friends for assistance that will enable us achieve that objective.
