MultiChoice Malawi gets injunction against Macra

Digital television service providers MultiChoice Malawi has obtained an injunction against the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) restraining the regulatory body from taking any action against the company and its employees.

The court order restricts Macra from making any enforcement measures as regards the services provided by MultiChoice Malawi until the judicial review case which is currently in court is determined.

Reacting to the court order Macra director general Daudi Suleman said currently DSTV signals are landing in Malawi illegally and the move by MultiChoice Malawi is to prevent them from taking action on the same.

“Use of spectrum without a license is a serious offence under the Communications Act.
Our legal team will contest this and regulatory enforcement will take place against any illegal
operator as per law and regulation,” said Suleman.

The injunction is the latest development in the ongoing rift between Macra and MultiChoice Malawi which has seen the television service providers suspend the provision of DSTV services in the country.
