In defining Kenya’s legacy and heritage the power, responsive and seamless Radio Taifa is the reference point. The station cuts across all genders, ages, class stratification and borders. We are the only radio station with a national reach available on four platforms i.e medium wave, FM, the internet and satellite.
Brand Radio Taifa launched its transmissions in 1953 having been hived off English service which hitherto was part of the colonial efforts to inform the national publics on the post war situation in Kenya. The station was then known as Kenya Broadcasting service Kiswahili. This station has evolved through the times and lived to its billing as both the national station transmitting its signal beyond the borders. Throughout its lifetime, Radio Taifa has transformed itself to meet ever changing audience demands. Through the times we have transmitted on various frequencies initially short wave, then combined short wave and medium wave before installing the crystal clear FM. We however still maintain the Medium Wave frequency transmission in selected parts of the country whose terrain and topography can only handle signals on a Medium wave platform. We are geared towards transmitting on the completely digital platform by 2015. Previous brand names for the station were Sauti ya Kenya, Idhaa ya Taifa and now Radio Taifa.
