Kenya's first Islamic TV channel launched

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The Jamia Mosque in Nairobi has launched Kenya's first full-spectrum Islamic television channel. Horizon TV, which will broadcast on digital platforms, was officially unveiled at a colourful ceremony at the Jamia Mosque on Friday by Jamia Mosque Committee chairman Sheikh Osman Warfa.

Warfa said the channel's content "aims to correct misconceptions about Islam and Muslims and nurture constructive dialogue, tolerance and cooperation among all Kenyans".

Horizon TV becomes the third religious television channel in Kenya after Family TV and GBS, both of which espouse the Christian faith. The channel, whose motto is 'Beacon for the Nation', will have both religious and general content. It will air on Bamba TV, among other stations.

The chairman of the channel's oversight board, Prof Abdullatif Essajee, said: "We will strive to provide positive narratives about Muslims and Kenyans as well as educate and entertain our viewers in ways that do not violate moral and Islamic principles."
