Uhuru Radio – serving African liberation

According to Uhuru News Director Nyabinga Dzimbahwe, “Uhuru Radio is a critically important weapon in the African liberation struggle! Throughout the African world, African people are facing severe economic and military aggression carried out by the forces that seek to enrich themselves at our expense. African people everywhere are resisting, and struggling for our freedom and the return of our resources. As the African liberation movement builds rapidly throughout Africa and the world, it’s urgent that Uhuru Radio expands its ability to communicate and unite the struggles of African people towards victory and independence in our lifetime.

“The Uhuru Movement recognizes that we are in a war of ideas. This is a war between the dying forces of white power imperialism and the emerging forces of African Socialism for the minds of the masses of poor and oppressed people. Today Imperialism has constructed a media cartel that serves the interest of the white ruling class. This international media apparatus serves to justify the brutal oppression carried out by imperialism every day. Moreover, its objective is to ideologically unite the European nation at the expense of the African nation.

“This imperialist media propaganda machine currently has a monopoly on the distribution of ideas. These ideas are intended to define our reality and shape our worldview. However, it is time for the African working class to speak for ourselves. It is time the world be seen from the perspective of the poor and oppressed masses.

“ is Black Power in the 21st Century. It is the vision and voice of the African working-class. Our interest is to tell the truth; showing the world as it is. Our mission is to bring voice to the most oppressed and exploited sectors of the African world.

“Finally, we understand that it is just a matter of time before the revolutionary ideals expressed here becomes a material force that will destroy imperialism and liberate Africa and her children dispersed throughout the world.”
