Muluzi’s Joy TV to start telecasting: eNews’ Liwewe train presenters

Malawi’s former president Bakili Muluzi’s aspirations to run Joy-TV alongside Joy FM radio, which were thwarted when Malawi government switched off the television broadcasting, has been given a lifeline as  the country’s first private television station will re-start its transmission.

Muluzi said on Monday that Joy Media Group which also owns Joy Radio want the Joy TV to be “professional and credible television station”.

He was speaking at an orientation course for Joy TV presenters and news readers conducted by Kwangu Liwewe of the eNews Channel Africa and Jane [Banda] Gogodus – formerly of MBC TV.

Liwewe is an African television journalist of considerable repute.  Her journalism career kicked off when she was recruited to help pioneer Malawi’s first TV.

“You need to read more and keep up with changes in the industry which is now more competitive,” Muluzi advised.

Joy Station Manager, Lloyd Zawanda said they  will roll out TV transmission  and continue broadcasting their programmes with “ new digital equipments.”

In 2007, the Malawi government through the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) removed broadcasting equipment from Mpingwe Hill, a few months after Joy-TV went live, claiming that the operator had no licence contrary to Joy Management who insisted that they radio licence had an extension that also allowed them to operate a TV station.

MACRA rewarded Joy TV the licence in 2012.

Public television and private radio stations only began broadcasting in Malawi in 1999, five years after the first democratic elections.

If Jane Gogodus is former MBC-Tv presenter, are you saying she has now joined Joy TV? If that is the case, then that is a good catch by Joy TV. The lady is a good news presenter, osati zinazi! Even before she went to serve in the Malawi foreign service, she was good at reading both English and Chichewa news bulletins. Osati anyamata a pa MIJ FM osadziwa kusiyanitsa pakati pa “reiterate and retaliate”. Kaya ma editors awo samamvera news before these boys and girls present the news to the public, kaya!!
