“We are so happy that people can now watch EPL games in their homes on MBC TV courtesy of Airtel Malawi,” he said.
MBC Director General, George Kasakula said he was a happy man since he assumed his role as the Director because people are happy that as public broadcaster they are able to give Malawians what they want.
