The South African radio station presented by children

In many places the voices and views of children are rarely heard on the airwaves.

In their stead, experts and policy makers say what is right and what is wrong for children.

However, things are changing in South Africa and in other parts of the continent thanks to the work of the Children's Radio Foundation, an international charity.

The BBC's Mohammed Allie met the people behind the show in Cape Town and sent this report to our Network Africa programme.
