Radio Zitouna

Radio Zitouna, a Tunisian station that focuses on the Holy Quran and its teaching, announced on Friday February 11th  that Rachid Tabbekh had been appointed the new head.

Radio Kalima reported that Tabekh has a Ph.D in Islamic Sciences.

“Tabbekh has a religious show on Radio Zitouna and is familiar with our station.  We are so glad to have him as a director,” stated Mahrez Belatra, an employee at Radio Zitouna.

This decision came after the employees protested against the appointment of the previous director Ikbal Gharbi, boasting a PhD from the Sorbonne University in Paris and currently a professor of anthropology as well as the head of the discipline’s department in Zitouna University – well-known for its Islamic studies program.

Belatra conveyed that they achieved their demands after more than four months of pressure on the government: “Finally we convinced the government that our demands were legitmate,” he stated in a phone interview with TunisiaLive.

The office of the prime minister, in charge of  appointing heads of public media, announced that the news was not official yet and a press release would be published shortly.

Ikbal Gharbi, the director appointed by previous Interim Prime Minister Beji Caied Essebssi, claimed that she had not been officially informed of the new appointment.
