MBC says on closure verge due to poor funding from budget

Officials from state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) says it is on the verge of closing down due to inadequate funding from the government.

MBC director general Aubrey Sumbuleta

The officials, who appeared before the Budget and Finance parliamentary cluster committee on Friday asked members of parliament to lobby for more funding for the state controlled broadcaster.

MBC is in huge debts due to failure by some government ministries and departments to pay for advertising services as well as shunning of advertising services by some organisations due to the broadcaster’s relentless propaganda for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

More than half of the journalists working for MBC are DPP loyalists.

Chairman of the cluster committee Sosten Gwengwe asked parastatals to embark on income generating activities to sustain their operations in view of poor funding from the government.

Kkkkkkkkkkk ndaseka. Who in this World, especially Malawi, watches MBC TV? We have even forgotten that there is Radio 1 and 2. I once visited a certain family, their daughter ACCIDENTALLY switched on MBC Radio Station, you could see how her parents should at her saying, “tachotsa iwe za umve zakozo, ife tinasiya kalekale kuvera zimenezo, tachita tune in ku radio zenizeni, not DPP Station”. I nearly fainted with a big laugh.

People are talking about your problems but you cannot change your attitude. You will close for good one day and you will be jobless. If we were asked our views still you are entitled K1.00 . Remain poor MBC.
