Moletsi Community Media History

Moletsi community radio was started by ordinary members of the rural area of Moletsi in terms of notice 785 of 1997 government gazette. The radio was born out of two initiatives namely Phuthanang Bahlaloga community radio station and Moletjie-concerned group. Both structures were established in June 1997 with the purpose of achieving the objective of having Moletsi community radio station.

In 1998 both structures Moletjie concerned group, led by Dr A.K.K Mathatho and Phuthanang Bahlaloga community radio station project, led by Mr. Phuti Maleka merged into one project, now called Moletsi community radio station. Merger was good in order to harness scarce resources of Moletjie for one objective of having a community radio…
