Rwanda : Radio Salus back on air
The Huye Transmitting Site
After a long period of technical ups and downs for the NUR Huye based radio Salus, students and fans can now smile again after it hit the air waves again.
This time the University radio which was broadcasting from only Mount Huye at 97.0 FM is now transmitting also from Mount Mount Jali at 101.9 FM.
According to Prof. Manasse Mbonye, the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs and Acting Rector of NUR, the NUR community and other fans can now enjoy the radio programmes without interruptions.
“On behalf of NUR Management, it is my pleasure to announce to all students of NUR and to all other fans that Radio Salus is now transmitting live both from Mt Huye and Mt Jali. Radio Salus had significant transmission issues. NUR has worked tirelessly to restore the Radio’s transmission capability,” said Mbonye.
“We feel that we have the major problems under control. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the time you waited for the restoration of the Radio’s services.”
Radio Salus was launched in 2005 broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 97.0 FM in Southern Province and 101.9 FM in other regions of Rwanda and neighboring countries.
The technical hitches hit the university radio at the beginning of 2010 and it has since been on and off the airwaves until recently.
Radio Salus provides educative, informative and entertaining programmes, while some of the aired shows focus on health, economy (business and poverty reduction), culture, religion, HIV/Aids and education
