LFM #WorldRadioDay - Khibika Natsi with MR Dladla

On 13 February 2019, UNESCO will celebrate the 8th edition of World Radio Day.

This day marks a time where people around the world celebrate radio and how it shapes our lives. Radio informs, transforms and unites us. It brings together people and communities from all backgrounds to foster positive dialogue for change. More specifically, radio is the perfect medium to counter the appeals for violence and the spread of conflict, especially in regions potentially more exposed to such realities.

On that basis, World Radio Day 2019 will celebrate the theme of “Dialogue, Tolerance and Peace”.
Broadcasts that provide a platform for dialogue and democratic debate over issues, such as migration or violence against women, can help to raise awareness among listeners and inspire understanding for new perspectives in paving the way for positive action.

Radio programming can also build tolerance and surpass the differences separating groups by uniting them under common goals and causes, like ensuring education for one’s children or addressing local health concerns.

In the spirit of celebrating World Radio Day 2019, an event open to the public will take place at UNESCO Headquarters on Wednesday 13 February 2019, from 11:00 to 16:00. Two radio stations will be broadcasting live, including Radio UNESCO, a temporary radio station dedicated to World Radio Day. In addition, a total of 10 “Speed Workshops” will be offered for all to gain hands-on experience in radio production. Registration is mandatory and can be done here.

#CGOTW - ZOLA

Bonginkosi Dlamini was born on 24 April 1977 in Soweto township of Johannesburg, Gauteng province, South Africa, where Dlamini spent his formative years in Zola, sub-township in Soweto notoriously known for its high crime rate, from which he adopted his name.[1] Unemployment, alcoholism, and single parent families are the norm in Zola. Dlamini's father believed to be part of the Mchunu clan abandoned the family, leaving his mother to care for him and his older brother and sister when they were young.

Career, Early 2015

Zola became part of the Utatakho tv programme. He mentioned that he didn’t expect the journey to be without emotion. His role was to intervene in the arguments and facilitate conversations between the parties involved until they get the fathers to agree to a DNA test. Some people were writing in asking to help them identify their real fathers, and others were asking to help them reconnect with their biological fathers. Stories were chosen based on their sensitivity and the reality of the budget. Utatakho was more heartbreaking for the children involved because the families and parents tear each other apart. Dlamini has worked in television long enough to know how to handle this kind of pain. It also helps that a professional counsellor is always present to mediate. Two of the st
