Sources within the media circle @ the Coast have indicated that Sheki FM has a new owner: Hon. Najib Balala, the Minister for Tourism and Mvita MP.
Analysts see Balala’s entry into Media ownership as direct move to counter Abdulswamad Nassir’s ownership of Radio Rahma.
Nassir has already indicated his interest for the Mvita seat come 2012 and Radio Rahma has been the key to popularise him to the Mvita electorate and sell his propaganda.
What remains to be seen is now whether Sheki FM will be rebranded and launched with a new bouquet of programming to reflect the change in ownership.
Sheki FM was owned by the late Tony Msalame who ran it from his house @ Nyali Enclave, Mombasa.
