Al Jazeera Swahili TV Coming Soon

I have been hearing this for a couple of weeks now. Now, I have decided to publish this post since I have heard from credible sources that indeed Al-Jazeera is planning to start a Swahili language television.

It is clear that the new channel will be available through satellite and cable systems.

Initially, it had been rumoured some while back that Al Jazeera was actually seeking to start a Swahili or English to Africa radio.

For the new Swahili TV channel, it is not clear yet where its main bureau will be. So far, it has not invested as much in east Africa.

However controversial it is, especially its Arabic channel, Al Jazeera has become one of the most influential news media in the Arab world and in the west.
