Royal FM Launches State-Of-The-Art Premises In Rwanda With Pomp

Kigali’s Radio Station ‘Royal FM’ has unveiled state-of-the-art and high-tech studios in a $400,000 worth media complex. The move was welcomed by many as a major milestone that will usher in many opportunities to radio broadcasting in Rwanda.

The launch, which took place on Friday, October 5, saw several personalities including Prof. Dr. Simon Gisharu, the Chairman of Mount Kenya University, Patrick Nyirishema, the Director General of Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA),‘s High Commissioner to Rwanda, John Mwangemi, among other dignitaries.

Speaking at the event, Prof. Dr. Rucagu said his ultimate objective as a sponsor of the project was to contribute to Rwanda’s economic and educational growth.

“Today we add to our growing success, not only a permanent broadcasting centre but an ultra-modern, state of the art radio that will give a great experience to our staff and listeners,” he said.


The media complex will help train the best in the field and grow Mount Kenya’s school of journalism as a centre of excellence.

RURA’s Patrick Nyirishema, who was the guest of honor at the event, applauded the new facility and revealed that Rwanda has granted Mount Kenya University the status of a national private university, meaning that the university will be graduating students in Rwanda and not in Kenya anymore, a blessing to students who have in the past been forced to travel all the way to Thika town, Kenya, for their graduation.

Meanwhile, Jackie Lumbasi, one of the seasoned hosts of Royal FM’s show ‘Kigali in the morning’ promised radio listeners the best of the best with the launch of the new facility.

“We are here not just as a radio but as a lifestyle, we want to be the radio that you and your family wake up to and go to bed listening to. Royal FM is here to stay and that’s because we are not just a radio station, we are an experience, we are a lifestyle, we are the Royals,” she enthused.

The complex’s production studio is fully equipped for services such as radio spot production, drama production, and all sort of audio advertising solutions. Alongside the radio, the facility will host the Royal Integrated Corporate Communications Services arm (RICCS), an office that will major in comprehensive brand corporate communications and public relations.
