Letter to ESAT TV Concerning New Afaan Oromoo Program To Start.

To: Ethiopia Satellite Television (ESAT TV)

Subject: ESAT New ‘Oromiffa/Oromigna’ program title correction request

First of all, I am really happy to hear such great decision and I would like to thank ESAT board and members for such long awaited decision to start broadcasting in Afaan Oromoo language as ‘Oromigna/Oromiffa’ ESAT program. and It is a great opportunity for our society living in different parts of the world to get timely news and information in their own language.

I am one of regular followers of your programs along millions of people in Ethiopia and around the world. Although I am so excited about the new Afaan Oromoo program you are starting soon, I like to inform you that the title (‘Oromiffa/Oromigna’ ESAT program) of the program is WRONG. 

Even though most people unknowingly call Afaan Oromoo Langugae as ‘Oromiffa/Oromigna’, It’s correct and standardized use is Afaan Oromoo Language not Oromiffa/Oromigna.  And I personally like to challenge you to make this right at start, ESAT Board and its member to consider correcting the program title.

Finally, I appreciate for taking time and responding to this request. I really hope to see the title being corrected and see AFAAN OROMOO ESAT PROGRAM (አፋን ኦሮሞ የኢሳት ፕሮግራም) on the air very soon.
