SK FM celebrates 10th anniversary

JANE FURSE – Hundreds of listeners of Sekhukhune (SK) FM gathered at Hlatlolanang Community Centre in Jane Furse on Saturday to witness and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the community radio station.

The station celebrated its milestone at the background of many challenges, mainly lack of funding, faced by community radio stations in the country.

The jubilant SK FM station manager, Jackson Kgaphola, thanked everybody from all walks of life who had gathered at the centre to celebrate with them their 10th anniversary.

“If it was not for you our listeners, we would not have come this far. Continue supporting us to be able to grow older,” said Kgaphola.

Acting Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, Orginia Mafefe, gave a message of support on the occasion.

 Mafefe congratulated the community radio station on the milestone achievement and also thanked the broadcasters for being a bridge between government and the communities.

 She encouraged the station to continue speaking about gender based violence and day to day challenges that communities faced and reiterated the district municipality’s continued support for them.

“We further encouraged positive reporting more especially about service delivery. For as much as citizens take their service delivery frustrations to radio, it is equally important for SK FM to report back about progress to listeners. Balanced Reporting will assist us all,” concluded Mafefe.
