Making the announcement, the station’s general manager, Ali Mwachuo stated that the new TV station would provide a platform whereby Christians and Muslims would learn from each other.

Mr Mwachua said that the station would broadcast in English, Kiswahili, and Arabic in order to reach a wider audience.

“Media plays a key role in educating the public and by educating our youth about propaganda spread by extremists, we will be fighting them indirectly since will be reaching a wider audience through our platform,” Mr Mwachuo was quoted by the Standard.

During Somalia President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed’s visit to Kenya, he acknowledged that terrorism and extremism had become a major threat, especially to the youth.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Somalia President agreed that the fight against Al-Shabaab evil criminals must continue until they are no longer a threat.

“Al-Shabaab remains ready to kill innocent people in both Kenya and Somalia,” President Kenyatta said.

Extremism has been a major problem in the coast with the Al-Shabab group targeting unemployed youth.
