Yesterday we exposed Central province minister Davis Chisopa’s plans to dissolve Mkushi community radio station, and for sure Chisopa in the company of Mkushi district commissioner Luka Mwamba visited the radio station and declared the board dissolved after a meeting with some members.
But board chairman Gershom Musonda has declared Chisopa’s move as a nullity because he has no powers to do such a thing. A source from the station has disclosed that Chisopa visited the station and directed that the board be dissolved and that a new one be constituted.
“He just came in, had a short meeting and declared the board dissolved. What he wants is to have a board composed of PF bootlickers who will block other opposition parties from featuring on the radio. They also want us to be a vuvuzela for the government but we denounce that,” disclosed the source.
The source further said that in spite of having made an earlier alert to Media Institute for Southern Africa (MISA) Zambia the body has kept quiet at the transgression.
Expecting anything from the PF aligned MISA Zambia led by Hellen Mwale and her fellow PF cadres is like expecting PF government to reduce the kwacha to K3 per dollar.
