By Tesfa-alem Tekle

March 9, 2009 (MEKELLE) — A Sudanese communication company, MURD, installs an FM radio station in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region.

The Dubai based Sudanese electronic company carried out the project after it won an international tender announced by the government of Ethiopia.

According to Yikum Haile,General Manager of the Radio station, a total of 6 million birr has cost to establish the radio station.

The General Manager believes that the newly established radio station will have a major value in bringing positive changes in different aspects.

"The radio station will play a great role in promoting the socio-economic and political part of the people in the Region" Yikum said adding "the transmission will cover Mekelle town and its environs within 100 kilometers radius".

Sudanese electronic engineer and Director of the project Mohamed Al-Mubarek told Sudan Tribune that the company, Murd, has similar contract deal to execute in Ethiopia

"We have a contract deal with the Addis administration to set up an educational FM Radio station in the capital, Addis Ababa" Mohamed said

He appreciated the Regional government’s close cooperation to successfully accomplish the project.

Mekelle Radio station which was inaugurated last week is expected to play significant Role by serving as a bridge between government and the people.

Established since 1996, MURD erected several radio stations in northern, southern and western part of the country. Currently it is working on AM station in Gedaref, eastern Sudan. The firm is also working on three radio transmission stations in the United Arab Emirates.
