Kangema FM is based at Gakira Market in Kangema constituency, Murang’a County. The radio went on air in February 2008. The aim was to address environmental issues, in particular to help communities avoid land mudslides which have killed many people in the area after heavy rains. The station’s signal covers a 25km radius, reaching thousands of mostly Kikuyu speaking farmers in the hills and valleys of Murang’a district, and spilling over into Nyeri district, Maragua and Kirinyaga.
