AmaZioni means "the people of Zion." They are religious groups that trace their history back to an evangelist who came from Zion, Illinois. The Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa (ZEMA) is a mission organization working to teach and reinforce God's word among them. Before 2012, their nineteen Bible school classes across Swaziland have been their main point of contact with the amaZioni. Since then, they use an additional tool to reach out even further to the thousands of adherents in Swaziland: FM radio.
“The first sounds coming from the Trumpet of Zion, a radio programme created by ZEMA missionaries and local Zion church leaders, were heard on Sunday, March 4, 2012 echoing across the hills of Swaziland and into the ears of siSwati-speaking people.
