Maoni Yako (“Your Opinion” in Swahili) is a radio magazine targeting rural communities in North and South Kivu in Eastern DRC.
It deals with topical issues affecting the rural audiences, ranging from discussing the political and ethnic manipulation of young people and hate speech during the election period, to cohabitation between refugees, migrants and host populations. Find out more here.
It addresses the issue of political and ethnic manipulation in understandable and politically acceptable ways. It is aired weekly on national radio and community radio stations.
The magazine dealt with recognition of hate speech, scapegoating, manipulation by elites, and “us and them”-attitudes. It further initiated dialogue between young representatives of civil society and special guests (media figures, role models and local leaders) with the aim of preventing violence during the election process.
