Communication in Somali society & BBC Somalia

Communication in Somali society & BBC Somalia
Communication in the Somali society has been transmitted orally for a longtime, earning a widely reciprocated nickname for the Somali people: an “oral society”. In part because the medium for which the communication is without it impossible, the Somali language, was barely written 30 years ago. The first exposure to media in Somalia, therefore, had to come in an oral form. In the early 1950’s, Radio Hargeisa was established in the then British protectorate, now breakaway region of Somaliland. Around that same time, Gamal Abdelnassir, Egypt’s late ambitious leader ordered Radio Arab Voices, a Pan-Arab broadcasting service out of Cairo to open a Somali speaking service.
