Salam TV upward curve continues through Ramadhan, spotted being watched in Health minister’s office

There are various reasons as to why different people consume television – news and information, entertainment, name it.

Photos from a recent meeting at the Ministry of Health Offices revealed a tiny detail that will surely excite the bosses at Next Media Services; Uganda’s first and only Islam-based TV station, Salam TV, on the television set.

For many, this will be a small little thing, but for anyone worth their bread in the very competitive media industry, a viewer choosing to watch your TV channel, or listen listen to your radio station, or even read off your website, is a win itself. Now imagine that being in a Government office.

Salam TV is one of the Next Media Services platforms, particularly focused on the Islamic faith and the betterment of Ugandans. They are currently running a Ramathan campaign to encourage Muslims to fast, while spreading sensitization on how best they can fast.

Recently, they partnered with telco giant, MTN Uganda, to donate to the Muslim community in commemoration of the holy month of Ramadhan. This year, however, the fasting period came at a challenging time when the whole world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the livelihoods of many, hence the need for the support.

Salam TV also runs Salam Charity, which encourages people to give alms as one of the five pillars of Islam. The TV station was launched in 2015 and airs on StarTimes Channel 116.
