Radio is one of the most powerful means of communication for many around the world.
World Radio Day is marked every year on February 13. It was proclaimed by UNESCO and endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly to celebrate radio as a medium and also to improve international cooperation between broadcasters.
In Kenya, the world radio day in Kenya was celebrated at the Fine BreezeHotel in Voi where many from across the region had an opportunity to share their experiences with radio presenters from the United Nations information centre. The event was organised by UNESCO regional office in Eastern Africa.
Present during the event were Advisor for Communication and Information at UNESCO Multi-sectoral regional office Jaco Du Toit, Public Relations Society of Kenya vice chair Grace Munjuri and United Nations information centre officer Irene Mwakesi.
