Radio continues to be a vital means of communicating with people in the remote Darfur region of Sudan, according to the head of the UN mission's station there, UNAMID Radio.

The UN estimates that 300,000 people have died and more than two million have fled their homes since fighting began in Darfur in 2003.

With mostly impassible roads and an illiteracy rate of 80 per cent, radio is the most effective way to communicate with people affected by the conflict.

Radio chief, Jumbe Omari Jumbe has been speaking to Joseph Msami.
