A newly created Radio Play called ‘Reflections’ created by MarComms, is fast becoming a Friday staple for students and staff as the University continues to raise awareness on COVID-19. The first episode was circulated last weekend.
“‘Reflections’ comes from us trying to raise awareness on COVID-19 in a different way than we are used to. We are trying to remind our stakeholders that COVID-19 is still out there and we still need to comply. We are communicating compliance through storytelling that reflects real life encounters. Going down on Lockdown Levels does not mean COVID-19 is gone; we are just sensitising MUT stakeholders that protocols still need to be observed even when we are on lower levels,” said Zama Sishi, Director: Stakeholder Relations Management. “Reflections” is gaining traction also because the actors are MUT students. “We are also laying a foundation for the launch of the MUT Radio Station and hope this will be sustainable even beyond COVID-19”.
