    Radio Islam Malawi has tremendously improved on its religious programs, according to a quarterly assessment by Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority MACRA.

    The assessment indicates the only Islamic Radio station in Malawi leapfrogging from 25 in the last quarter to 45 percent.

    Meanwhile, the station’s head of programmes Yusuf Chinyada says the report is not surprising saying the station has indeed carried out more religious programmes in the past three months.    

    The report also shows Radio Islam as the only radio station that has surpassed all radio station stations in Malawi in terms of frequency availability –  scoring 98 percent seconded by Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Radio 1 and 2 with 97.6 percent.

    One of the listeners from Blantyre Yunusu Mdala says he is very happy with the way Radio Islam has been conducting its programmes but advised them to do more.

    “I now always tune in to Radio Islam unlike before. They have really made a tremendous improvement in their programmes. Their programmes are not repeated as often as they used to be. So, big up to the Radio Islam management,” said Mdala.
