After callers to a live radio program dubbed ‘hot issues’ on Kasama’s radio Mano publicly denounced PF information minister Chishimba Kambwili for tribal rantings in Kasama, government has now directed an immediate stop of the program.
Residents and sources from Kambwili’s office have revealed that Kambwili personally called a PF agent at the radio station Paul Chileshe to halt the program. Chileshe is program manager at the radio station and has even been given a Toyota Land cruiser vehicle by State house.
The presenter Majory Chibwe Musonda has also been suspended pending dismissal by the compromised station management. However Musonda’s suspension has sparked unrest in the newsroom with reporters threatening to go on strike if she’s not reinstated. Currently the reporters have stopped going outside for news coverage.
