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.

Congrants Joy Tv.

  8. Titus Skoti says:

    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!! Anyway, timawakhululukira poti adakali pa training. Komabe ena ndi akale ndithu. Please change! Emulate the likes of Jane Gogodus.

    uyo Loyd Zawanda amadana ndi MCP like nobodys’ bisiness. to him only him, udf, muluzi and atupele ndi amene amatha. chingerezi chothyokatchokacho

    1. mmbalewakewamungopark says:

      Probably you will NEVER appreciate why amadana ndi MCP.
      Probably you were not born during MCP rule and
      Probably you or your relatives never experienced the atrocities MCP committed for mere differing views.
      Probably none of your relative was meat for crocodile
      Probably you did not line up to clap hands for HKB from 6am to 9pm
      Probably your relative were never followed by SB agents to conferences outside Malawi and that any meaningful contribution to the discussions earned you an arrest upon arrival at the airport and without trial.
      Probably none of your relative experienced the Dzaleka, Mikuyu etc treatment.
      Probably none of your relatives experienced house arrest without trial
      Probably you never experienced the environment whereby people feared their own house walls
      Probably none of your relations was dismissed from employment without cause and never to secure a job in MW until multiparty time. Evidence is Late Bingu who ran away from these ills the list is endless.
      Probably you never experienced being beaten by wayufi or MYP for not carrying with you the MCP card and not allowed to proceed to go to the hospital or board a bus.
      The list is endless. That is why you may never comprehend why he danas with MCP.
      A lot of ills.

    Private Radio stations were allowed to operate in Malawi in 1998 and not 1999. Please update your records. 101 FM with DJ Banton, Shingirai Mpesi, Hitman, Ngamanya Sapao and this lady I think Momo the Bad or something like that. 101 used to host lots of Benson & Hedges Shows. Titovanapo apa? eeetu- eeeeee!

  31. Patriot says:

    Kaya zanu izo.
    Ife timaonera independent tv station like Times and Zodiak.
    They are not biaised like MBC (mulakho Braodcasting) and to be Joy Tv (Udf).
