Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development Governance Transparency Fund, BBC Media Action implements the governance project A National Conversation in Angola, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. In Angola and Sierra Leone, BBC Media Action has been producing and broadcasting radio output since 2010. Over 1 million people have been reached through the project’s programming in Angola and Sierra Leone (1). A total of 63% of regular (2) listeners in Angola and Sierra Leone combined think project programming is playing a key role in holding government to account. In Tanzania earlier this year, the project launched a weekly discussion programme on BBC Swahili called Haba Na Haba (Little By Little).
