Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, Dora Siliya says she is pleased that the Digital Migration project has yielded positive results.

Speaking in Lusaka today during the handover of five Outside Broadcasting (OB)Vans to ZNBC Ms. Siliya said this will help improve picture and signal quality.

She said the move will allow all players to participate in the global transition of the digital World.

She stated that government has also shown commitment towards the advancement of digital migration through the improvement of infrastructure.

Ms. Siliya said the infrastructure development will give the people of Zambia an opportunity to know that Television is not just a privilege but a right.

She disclosed that the refurbishment of ZNBC and ZANIS studios have been completed with state of the art equipment installed.

Ms. Siliya has since challenged the two institutions to work on the business side of the project and its subsequent sustainability.

She hoped that with the new OB vans there will be improved execution of duty and signal so that viewers can also appreciate the shift in technology.

Ms. Siliya pointed out that the onus is on ZANIS and ZNBC to ensure that the industry grows so that there may be a win-win situation for all the players.

She said government has however continued to show its commitment towards the advancement of digital migration.

Speaking earlier, ZNBC Board Chairperson Mulenga Kapwepwe said she is confident that the OB Vans will be put to good use.

Ms. Kapwepwe said the Vans will open up a new dawn for the improvement of the digital migration programme.

She the two institutions should keep in mind that the media industry is currently quite competitive and requires a lot of efforts for good performance.

    • They have learnt better not to tell us the cost of these things like the fire engines. I often wonder why not invest in the studios which have forever been old and archaic … these things will soon breakdown then what ?? Just another deal I guess ūüôĀ

    • This part of the Digital package ..you need digital OB vans to transmit the signal…just remember to pay back the loan to the owners of ZNBC the Chinese…those people you are thanking probably got huge kickbacks out of those rotten deals!!

  1. What do you mean hands over? These vans were bought with Chinese money from that 60% stake in ZNBC you sold out so how can you hand over something that already belongs to them. When Chibamba Kanyama was there you refused to fund him; the man was looking for secondhand equipment…you had to sell souls to the Chinks to control your children’s minds. Are you not ashamed of yourselves!!

    • Some of us are experts in the media bussiness. We know when you pay for the most expensive digital migration in this part of our world and studios in all provinces were part of the package ,then you get vans instead,we know you have been shafted big time.. …

  3. You give away controlling shares of your national broadcasting company for a loan over $250 million to a foreign govt…and you think you have got a good deal….diabolical. Go to China and see how they look at you in the street …

  5. UPND is trying hard with cosmetic facelift surgery by featuring “Thieves” to help them look “accommodating” and that it is not a tribal gathering group but we know who they are! You can fu me once but you cannot fu me all the time! “ONLY A TONGA CAN LEAD UPND and you Sakwiba Sikota YOU ARE NOT TONGA!” I always forget who said this, can you please remind me HaJayJay who said theses words please?

  6. Congratulations ZNBC and Siliya and Zambia! Please keep shaming the little boy! He is Childish and he will NEVER be president of Zambia! A person vying for presidency letting the president be disrespected like that in Mongu and he cannot yield to the president’s motorcade tells you how evil the boy and his people are. Listen to how they were behaving and watch them on YouTube. Then the little girl Mutinta appears on TV to give out delusional statements about Zambia like HaJaYJaY himself and HaSpakata and Childish himself! (Watch this too)! Thank God Childish is childish and he will only become Paramount Chief of Namwala!

  7. The agony is in 10 years those trucks would have broken down…..while if Zambia got studios as they paid for , even 70 years those studios would still be standing…

    So we pay for studios in all provinces , is it 14 of them , instead you get 5 vans or trucks and 2 studios ???

    Lungu this is day light robbery.
