BBC Afaan Oromoo starts Facebook publication

Posted: Fulbaana/September 13, 2017 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments (5)

Back in November 2016, BBC, one of the world’s largest media organizations, announced that it would start radio transmission in Afaan Oromoo, among other Horn of African languages. Afaan Oromoo is the mother-tongue more than 40 million in the Horn of Africa, and is one of the top five widely-spoken African languages.

As part of the rollout of the radio service, BBC Afaan Oromoo kicked off its publication on Facebook @bbcnewsafaanoromoo on September 10, 2017. The first post was an offering of blessings to God/Waaqa. The radio service is expected to start by the end of 2017.

    The British had a plan to start Afaan Oromoo program some 50 years ago. May be Dr.Moga Firisa has something to say about it if he is stil alive. I heared him say he was offered scholarship by the British regarding this subject but was rejected by the Ethiopian government.
