MBC TV refused to beam Malawi Queens game over television rights

Malawi National Council of Sports  (MNCS) boss George Jana refused state broadcaster  MBC TV and private Calvarly TV to beam the ongoing games of the African Netball Championship at Blantyre Youth Centre in Blantyre demanding that they pay K1 million for TV rights.

On Wednesday morning before Malawi Queens against Zambia game, members of MBC TV and Calvarly Church TV came with their cameras set to beam the games but to their surprise they were demanded by Jana not to beam the game or else they pay K1 million each for  TV rights.

The two TV station camera men did not argue with Jana as they just packed their equipment’s before vacating the place.

Jana did not stop from there as he also demanded GOtv Malawi to remove their sign posts for adverts and a tent which they erected demanding them to pay K1 million.

However, GOtv is the sponsor of Malawi Queens and they also sponsor netball Champions League Netball Cup.

A few minutes after being demanded to remove the sign posts, the company members did not hesitate and removed their belongings before leaving the place.

Many people questioned why Sports Council behaves in such a manner to GOtv which is already pumping lot money to netball by sponsoring Malawi Queens and a netball cup.
