I would like to say all welcome to Ethiopian Civil Service University Community Radio station to visit us on ECSU website.

The Ethiopian Civil Service University Community Radio Station- Civil Service FM 100.5 is a radio station which is established under the university to serve the community within and around the university. The Radio is issued under Broadcasting Proclamation No 533/07 Article, 16 radio broadcasting license and registered under No 33/2003 with ownership of community radio and allotted frequency of 100.5.

The radio station has a social agenda and provides profound new opportunities for inclusive sustainable development of the community. Furthermore, it works in the cultural context of the community it serves; it deals with local issues which are not covered by public, private and commercial broadcasting which are relevant to local problems and concerns. Its aim is to help the community to develop socially, culturally and economically and responds to the needs of the community it serves, contributing to its development within progressive perspectives in favor of social change.

The vision of our university is to become a leading center of excellence in public service capacity building in Africa by 2025 through building efficient, effective, transparent and accountable public service which can contribute to the realization of the development and transformation driven from the country. All ECSU communities have their own responsibilities to the achievement of this.

Therefore, the station also give a due attention to ensure good governance by building accountable public service through the program developed by the station which is called “Enimekaker” which means “exhorting” or “let as consult each other”. The name of the program is derived from the mission of the university “Consultancy” through which the university build the capacity of the public sectors through consulting them by experts of the university. The radio station plans a program to open live telephone discussion between public sectors/Service providers/ representatives and the customers. They discuss about the service delivery of sectors, ask questions, comment and suggest about the services and create transparency and accountability.
