So far MP Mumbi Phiri has not apologised.

Mrs Tonga says it is unfortunate that Munali Patriotic Front-MP Mumbi Phiri has so far failed to apologise for referring to Journalists in the public media as dogs.

Mrs. Tonga says Mrs. Phiri must acknowledge that she erred and the corporations is ready to accept the acknowledgement.

She said ZNBC takes strong exception to the use of unpalatable language irrespective of where it is coming from.

Mrs. Tonga says in a statement that ZNBC is hoping that Mrs Phiri will heed to calls for an apology for using bad language and bringing into disrepute the standing of parliament.
