Sikazwe warns Radio Mano
Northern Province Minister Freedom Sikazwe
Northern Province Minister Freedom Sikazwe has cautioned Radio Mano staff to refrain from issuing alarming statements to the effect that some people are planning to attack their institution when in-fact not.
Mr. Sikazwe has refuted media reports suggesting that some individuals are planning to attack radio Mano community station in Kasama.
He said investigations carried out so far by security wings have established that none of the claims were true.
ZANIS reports that the Provincial Minister said there is need for responsible reporting among media personnel to avoid misleading the nation on matters of national interest.
Mr. Sikazwe further advised Radio Mano staff to report any matter bordering on security threats to relevant authorities.
And Radio Mano Community Station board chairman Allan Mwango said he will call for an urgent board meeting to discuss the concerns raised by the Provincial Minister and other stakeholders who may not be happy with the operations of the institution.
Meanwhile, Kasama District Commissioner Kelly Kashiwa and Patriotic Front member Kelvin Sampa have threatened to take legal action against Radio Mano Community Station for allegedly broadcasting false news against them.
Earlier this week, Radio Mano Community Station suspended its normal programming claiming there were threats directed at some staff at the institution.
