Radio can be used as a tool to enact great change, according to a journalist working with the United Nations radio station in South Sudan (UNMISS).

Sebit William Ker was speaking on the line from Juba about the importance of World Radio Day (WRD) as well as radio's role in connecting people across the country.

The annual event celebrates radio as a powerful communication tool and a low cost medium.

Mr William also shared with Jocelyne Sambira what keeps him personally motivated in a difficult and sometimes dangerous environment.
