Dutch journalism students visit the Mother

A group of enthusiastic Dutch journalism students from the Windesheim University in Zwolle visited the Bush Radio offices yesterday to learn more about the history and workings of Bush Radio.

Former Managing Director and current board member Zane Ibrahim gave an insightful talk about the challenges Bush Radio had to overcome. Ibrahim also spoke about the purpose of Bush Radio and the strong belief in the station being the voice of the community.

The visit included a tour around the offices, and the students were able to experience exactly what Bush Radio is all about. One of the students, Liza Voppen, said: “I would love to come and visit Bush Radio again during my stay in Cape Town, so that I can shadow one of the producers and see what it is they really do.”

Two of the students had a short interview during Sakhisizwe regarding their visit to Cape Town.

Another student Genna Bostelaar said, “ I didn’t know what to expect when we went to Bush Radio, but I very soon understood that this is more than just radio making. The things Bush Radio does for the community are great and I really think it’s for a good cause. It’s also interesting to see how they work and how the people that work here become part of Bush Radio. I think that a lot of Dutch journalism students would be very pleased to take an internship here.”

The students ended off the visit by chatting to Zane at the “big table*”, asking him various questions, including his availability for an interview regarding the history of Bush Radio and his life. They left the station with a clear idea as to what community radio and Bush Radio is about.

*The “Big Table” is an area at Bush Radio occupied by a large table where open discussion, frank debates and meetings are held.

Original story published by Bush Radio News – 25 May 2010

With just over 10 days left before kick-off to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Africa’s oldest community radio, Bush Radio had the honour to host soccer bosses during its afternoon-drive show.

FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke accompanied by Local Organising Committee Chief Executive Officer Danny Jordaan were in studio with Everyday People’s Sive Msolo and Freedom Raphela.

Central to their discussions was the state of readiness for Africa’s first ever soccer showpiece.

Valcke said the country was more than ready to welcome the world for the soccer spectacle.

“South Africa is ready for the world, which I think is the most important thing today, you will see that when the world comes to South Africa we will not only have 31 teams, but five thousand media representatives, officials, fans and all around 400 000 people coming to the country,” said Valcke.

Valcke said when these people leave the country after the 32 day soccer tournament, they will attest that they had a great time in the country.

Asked about the legacy of the tournament Jordaan said the country will benefit through sustainable develop in the areas of transport infrastructure as well as economic opportunities.

“If you look into transport, there has been a transport revolution in the country. We have upgraded the airport in Cape Town which means we will have more aircrafts landing therefore more people coming boosting tourism,” Jordaan said.
