Uganda Private Radio Stations 4

FM stations also create a platform for listeners to unify. Radio fan clubs directly promote developmental projects, such as pooling money together for investment.

Still, there are several areas to improve.

Kitzio say that he wishes it were more affordable to advertise on the radio so local business owners like him could advertise their businesses.

At the same time, Kalembe says that the explosion of FM stations means that they are competing for the same listeners and advertisers, which may force some to close.

Kalembe says that some FM stations must improve their programming, like ones that only play music and crack jokes. Although these do have their niche, he says that in a country that is still counted among the poorest in the world, the stations should use the airwaves better, with development at the forefront.

There is also the danger of people using the airwaves to incite violence, as was done in Rwanda during the genocide, Kalembe says. But the government has laws against this, making it illegal to propagate violence or broadcast anything that is meant to create unfair bias against the government.
