Kasama’s Radio Mano has with immediate effect resumed normal transmission after a temporal closure which was effected last night.
This follows a three-hour dialogue meeting between the radio station and the ruling PF chaired by Northern Province Minister Freedom Sikazwe at his office which assured the safety of the Radio Mano Journalists from any harm from political party cadres.
Senior officers from the Zambia Army, Office of the President, Zambia Police Service and Zambia Prisons Service including representatives from the civil society and some members of the community were part of the dialogue meeting between Radio Mano and the PF.
The radio station was forced to temporarily shut down Wednesday evening until Thursday morning after PF officials threatened to burn down the station.
The officials who protested on Monday at Kasama Airport during President Edgar Lungu’s departure for Lusaka said they have been incensed by Radio Mano’s alleged bias coverage.
