Mohammed Al Khushail, VIVA Acting CEO emphasized on the importance of the event and said “For the past 9 years, the annual Media Ghabga has become one of the most awaited-for events of the year, where we see some of the most influential names in Bahrain gather together to celebrate the holy month. We are forever grateful for the endless and continuous efforts you put forth in your professions as journalists”.
