Zodiak yet to apologise to Malawi President Mutharika

Private electronic media group, Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) is yet to apologise to President Peter Mutharika exactly a week after he demanded an unconditional apology.

Kazako: No  apology yet

Kazako: No apology yet

Zodiak has been under intense fire from Mutharika who accuses the station of “irrensponsible journallism” following a story that revealled that the president is secretly chartering presidential jets costing the tax payer as huge as K300m at one trip as the country is going through harsh economic times.

The broadcasting house’s managing director and founder, Gospel Kazako could not comment but sources said the station cannot apologise because they stand by their report, though disputed.

“Even the President himself did not dispute the facts, actually he acknowedged the government was chartering the presidential jets for him,” said our source.

Mutharika said at the news conference that he will continue hiring the jets, saying he cannot be held up at airports for hours in flight connections and delays.

“What I want this radio station to do is to tell me how I should be travelling to other countries,” said Mutharika in reference to Zodiak.

But Mutharika disputed Zodiak report and gave his version giving out information where the jet was hired and challenged Malawi journalists to investigate and report on facts and not speculations.

Since this last Thursday news conference, Zodiak has been quiet on the matter, probably deliberately avoiding a political storm with the Head of State .

Speaking defiantly, Mutharika said he would be up in the skies in the chartered presidential mood heading to India and UK.

The country’s economy is down on its knees with the country experiencing drug shortages in public hospitals, high food and basic commodity prices and low education standards in public schools.

If there is any one to apologize is our gay president who can’t control his temper tantrums like a two year old. the crazy act he performed for Malawians was totally uncalled for especially considering that his salary is cut from our tax payer’s money. A president is supposed to be level headed, so what if he is faced with a real serious situation, his anger will cloud his objective thinking. ………. Mathanyula, don’t you EVER perfom like a two year old ever again


Peter should be the first to apologize for swindling Malawi govt money through allowances paid to chiefs at UN

Do not be afraid Zodiak, we here the truth from Zodiak because does not hide. Why you Peter want to deprive the rights of Malawians to access information. Zodiak is right and no need to apologise.
