PRIVATELY-RUN Prime Television is set to resume broadcasting tomorrow midnight after being off-air for almost a month following a ban by the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA).
The IBA suspended Prime Television’s broadcasting license for 30 days early this month accusing it of biased news coverage, opinionated news analysis and Broadcasting material likely to incite violence.
IBA’s decision was met with widespread public condemnation with several calls from various individuals, organisations and diplomats to reverse the ban.
But in an internal memo this afternoon, Prime Television Human Resource manager Lovedel Milambo wrote; This serves to inform you all that our suspension has been lifted effective tomorrow, the 29th of March 2019.”
Milambo said, “to this effect, we will resume our normal operations tomorrow and we are all required to report for work without fail.”
Milambo thanked all Prime Television staff for remaining steadfast during the suspension.
