MBC has very few programs that actually warrant your time, but most of us still watch it because they somehow randomly give us the greatest show of broadcasting mistakes on earth, so it’s fun. I’ve decided to be collecting these mistakes and every time I have 5 of them I’ll be adding to this collection. Maybe someone over there will look at this and start paying closer attention to what they serve the public, because we don’t want another season of their 24 hour horror show of mistakes. Here are the 5 most recent humiliating ones;
Annual celebration of the 50th annual celebration
Toyota Malawi was having it’s 50th anniversary celebration and the president was the guest of honour so MBC beamed the event live. The text on TV however shows that MBC think Toyota Malawi will be celebrating its 50 years of existence every year from now. So next year perhaps Toyota will be celebrating 50 years of existence in its 51st year, LOL. Beaming such a corporate VIP event live on TV requires a competent production team, and this is the best that MBC could come up with. This seems like an honest mistake, but come on, this is National Television!
Imaging being massaged by a cop
I love massages, they’re just so relaxing, Once in a while I sneak into the Chinese massage palour next to Alexander’s pub to relax my muscles, but I’ve never imagined a Malawian gun-waving cop as someone who can give any kind of massage.
They say a good message massages the brain, I guess that’s what MBC meant in this credit. The police paid for a 15 minute program to give the entire nation a mental massage, not a message. Bravo Malawi Police! Good work!. P.S. notice the spelling of partnership, LOL.
It must hurt to be a councilor
I always wondered why all councillors can’t wait to run for Mayor once voted into power, thanks to MBC I now get it; Nobody knows what the hell a councillor does! In fact, nobody is even sure how to spell the word councillor. So what do you do when you work at MBC and you’re not sure how to spell? You just use all the possible options and leave it to the viewers to choose what suits them! In instance, 3 different spellings for the word councillor are seen in one sentence; Councillor, Counsellor and Councellor, you pick what you like, musova.
Malawi the Frames
Malawi’s direct English translation is flames; every Malawian with at least half a brain cell knows that!
But wait, MBC seems to think our country was named after a door frame, or perhaps a window frame, or is it a picture frame? I think we should ask MBC to teach history in primary school. They must have a very interesting version of the story of our country’s name. Is it Flames or Frames? This mistake was seen during the pre-match commentary of a Malawi vs Ghana football game. What is more humiliating is that they never corrected it for the entire 90 minutes, the word Frames was on the scores and timer panel on the top right corner of every Malawian television for an entire hour and 30 minutes and nobody at MBC noticed. Good lord!
Minister Landa, of Housing & Urination.
Our president really took his time to trim the cabinet size and appoint only credible cabinet ministers. He spent so many days after his appointment last year trying to figure out which ministries and which people were fit and relevant to be maintained, so my assumption is that this strange ministry as labeled by MBC must be really important.
I’m still trying to figure out what exactly this ministry does,I should get in touch with Honourable Bright Msaka. What in the hell does “Minister Landa, of Housing” mean??? With the “UR” partly visible at the end of the picture, I’m sure that MBC meant to say “Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development”, but with such incompetence on public display, I wouldn’t be surprised if they wrote it as “Minister Landa, of Housing “ Urination”.
Do you have any hilarious MBC mistakes you think people would laugh at? Upload them and they’ll make the next issue. Sorry MBC, no beef but you are way too funny at times.—Source: Pabwalo
