MACRA Orders Angaliba TV And Radio To Cease Broadcasting

The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) has ordered Angaliba television and radio to cease broadcasting for failure to pay outstanding licence fees.

In a statement signed by Macra director general Daud Suleman, the authority directed Angaliba to cease broadcasting within 24 hours from June 14, 2022.

Reads the statement in part: “In 2021, Macra renewed Angaliba’s Television and Radio licences. The renewal was subject to Angaliba paying outstanding licence fees, Angaliba made some payments towards the outstanding fees but disputed the amount owing to Macra.”

It further says while reconciliations were underway to ascertain the exact amount due to Macra, Angaliba resumed its transmission contrary to Macra’s directive.

Macra summoned Angaliba on the issue on June 6 2022 for hearing, and a decision was made thereafter for Angaliba to cease broadcasting.
