MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF KADETFU

KCR FM 93.3We are delighted to bring to your notice that KADETFU has finally achieved its long cherished ambition and established a community radio station, the first of its kind in Kagera Region.  It is now ready on air waiting for the official launching after fulfilling all needed requirements by the Regulatory Authority.

As we said in our last publications, Radio is a very useful tool with great impact to the society. Radio disseminates information to all people, literate and illiterate alike, urban and rural population, surrounding and remote areas where it is difficult to be reached due to infrastructure limitations; many people get information at the same time and such service can easily be afforded by most families i.e. most of the families can afford to buy a small radio set.

Banana Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW)

COMMUNITY BASED APPROACH IN COMBATING BANANA XANTHOMONAS WILT (BXW) FOR FOOD SECURITY, POVERTY REDUCTION AND SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS (PILOT PROJECT) IN NSHAMBA AND RUBALE DIVISIONS OF MULEBA AND BUKOBA DISTRICTS, KAGERA REGION, TANZANIA

Banana is major staple food crop in Kagera region and in other countries of East African Great Lakes region. It is an important cash and food crop for more than 2 million people of Kagera Region. Banana dominates the diet of the Bahaya people of Kagera Region. Bananas are also important source of income for farmers and they provide ecological functions such as protection of the soil against erosion and leaching.

Despite the significance of banana for the food security, incomes and livelihoods of the communities in Kagera region (Tanzania), the crop is significantly threatened by banana Xanthomonas wilt (BXW) (Xanthomonas campenstris pv.musacerum).

Generally, Banana Xanthomonas wilt (BXW) jeopardizes the food security, family incomes and livelihoods of millions of farmers in Kagera region and beyond. BXW was first reported in Ethiopia about 40 years ago and then spread to other countries including Uganda in 2001, and Tanzania in January 2006 at Kabale village, Muleba District of Kagera region. Since then the disease has contributed to decreased household and national food security and income and unreliable livelihood. It has caused great losses of up to 100% in poorly managed banana plantations.
