Earlier this week, members of the Community Media Network in Tanzania-COMNETA rejoiced after their network received official registration from the Government of Tanzania.

The network comprises about 25 community radios operating in the most rural settings of Tanzania, home to over 44 million people and more than 126 ethnic groups.

A national state owned broadcaster exists around the country, but community radios are popular among villagers who now have their voices heard and issues discussed over the radio by people whom they know.

Stella Vuzo caught up with Al Amin Yusuph, the Communications Officer for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in Tanzania, and first asked him about the registration of the network.
