In partnership with the Central African National Assembly, Radio Ndeke Luka, the most popular media of the Central African Republic, created and supported by Fondation Hirondelle, launched on Saturday 8 July a new weekly “Parliamentary Magazine”.
It will be broadcasted every Saturday at 8:20 local time, with a replay on Sunday at 5:30 pm. The aim is to better explain to the CAR citizens the functioning and work of the 140 deputies of this 6th parliamentary legislature. With a 15 mn format in French and 15 mn in Sango, the main national language, the program was conceived as a real magazine, structured in 5 parts, hosted by a Radio Ndeke Luka journalist, with specific jingles and music.
The1st issue on Saturday proposed an interview with the spokesman of the Assembly, explaining the functioning of the Parliament, a report in Bouar following 2 deputies meeting with the local population, a vox-pop on people’s perception of the Assembly, an explanation of the mission of the new "High Authority for Good Governance" ... In the last part of the magazine, the "lexique” (“lexicon"), the 1st parliamentary secretary each week will explain a word / expression. For this first issue the question was: What is an "ordinary session"?
