Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila has complained against the decision by Prime TV not to air any of the ruling party’s programs.
Mr Mwila said that it was extremely unfortunate that a media institution like Prime TV would decide to completely black out any of the PF’s activities even when its journalists attend and film such assignments.
Mr Mwila made the remarks, yesterday at the PF Headquarters in Lusaka a few minutes before announcing the expulsion of the Bahati lawmaker Hon Harry Kalaba from the ruling party.
“How come Prime TV is here when they have resolved never to broadcast any PF programs and assignments? Why are they here and who invited them?
“Prime TV has opted to completely black out anything concerning PF! They have resolved never to televise anything we do and yet they keep showing up at assignments such as this one for what? It is very unfair to us and I can not tolerate it. I run this thing!,” said Mr Mwila before asking the reporter to leave.
“You film whatever happens here then what? I think you should leave. Please leave.”
