Interview with Obbo Tolera Adaba a senior journalist in SBO
Media, in a liberation struggle, is alpha and omega.
In a country where internet is rare, satellite communication is unthinkable, TV is a luxury and FM is unknown, a shortwave radio still remains the only and an effective media outlet. Voice of Oromo Liberation (SBO –Sagalee Bilisummaa Oromoo) with its shortwave radio transmission has been in service for the last 25 years.
SBO aired its first program 25 years ago on June 15, 1988. Next week on June 15, 2013 it marks its silver jubilee. How can one describe the contribution of this media outlet in the past quarter a century to the Oromo liberation struggle? How did SBO overcome the harsh attempt by successive Ethiopian regimes to jam the media? What is role of SBO in shaping a strong Oromo media now? What important lessons do we learn from this quarter a century old Oromo media?
Obbo Tolera Adaba is a senior and a seasoned journalist in SBO who has been serving in this media since its inception. On the occasion of the silver jubilee of SBO, he discusses many issues with Radio Afuura Biyyaa in this interview. Stay tuned and miss it not!
