Sirakalu sub location in Bungoma North sub county assistant Chief Mrs. Alice Wanyonyi has lauded West Media for its recommendable work that is doing to the community especially within Bungoma County.
Addressing Mumbo FM salaams club in her area of jurisdiction during the merry go round and fundraising for Tumaini Mumbo salaams club, Mrs. Wanyonyi said the idea of West Media bringing their fans into groups to start development programs has really made her work easier as many of her residents are now busy and have no time engaging in criminal acts.
She said unlike other stations West Media has gone to the people in the villages to make sure that they unite groups regardless of the church doctrine or tribe which has really helped a lot and groups are being used as uniting factors that has made people co- exist well and live in harmony.
She also appreciated the programs being aired, saying they are very educative and have helped the society and some are very entertaining especially in the morning and midnight.
“I really like West Media, it has done a lot in our houses, sometimes some families with wrangles are reconciled by the programs you air and that helps us as leaders because they will not waste time coming to report to our offices and that makes our work easier and therefore am proud of you people and keep it up because as I can see you are going far,” said Mrs. Wanyonyi
She encouraged other people who have joined groups to join West Media groups saying they are doing marvelous and appealed to leaders to support such organized groups.
