The Integration of Community Radios in Achieving the Goals of the "Big Results Now"? in Tanzania

Mwidima Peter Charles

Abstract: The Big Results Now? is a development model adopted from the Malaysian government. It focuses on new working methods in specific timeframe for the effective and efficient delivering of required national development vision and mission (URT, 2013). The initiative is also considered being a delivery approach focused on delivering some specific goals in the country within a stipulated timeline. This paper aims at underscoring the significance of community radio stations as an avenue for the development of a country with specific reference to Tanzania. This is because, despite many efforts by a wide variety of stakeholders, the actual impact on the integration of community radio in Tanzania remains unclear. Thus, this paper attempts to provide some possible solutions of integrating community radio stations in attaining some planned goals of a country with specific reference to the goals of the Big Results Now in Tanzania. To explore this, diverse related literatures and documents were reviewed. The focus of the reviews was directed towards the roles played by the community radio in selected countries and how such roles may be utilized and adapted by community radio in Tanzania towards achieving the set goals of the Big Results Now. During the review, it was observed that community radio stations have significant contributions towards the attainment of the goals of the Big Results Now. It was further evidenced and confirmed that community radio stations had played significance contributions in implementing the goals of the Big First Results Now in Malaysia as well as the industrialization priorities in Thailand (Tahir, 2016). Thus, there is a greater needy for Tanzania and perhaps all developing countries to strongly integrate community radio in their projects and developmental goals.
