IBA CAUTIONS MUVI TV AGAIN LUSAKA, 16th May, 2021 – The Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) is appalled by the conduct of Muvi Television when it hosted Economic and Equity Party President Mr. Chilufya Tayali on its Special Assignment Programme aired on Saturday, 15th May, 2021.Barely three weeks ago, Muvi TV was cautioned by the IBA for unprofessional conduct when it featured Poor People’s Party President Mr. Alex Muliokela. The Station was directed to exercise good judgement and take ethical considerations seriously, regardless of whether a programme is paid for or not. The Authority is concerned that Muvi TV does not seem to observe the highest professional standards as provided in Section 24 (1) (e) of the IBA (Amendment) Act No. 26 of 2010 which states that the programming provided by Commercial Stations must meet the highest standards of journalistic professionalism.IBA wishes to reiterate that it will not hesitate to invoke Section 29 of the IBA (Amendment) Act No. 26 of 2010, which gives the Board the power to suspend, revoke or cancel any broadcasting licence issued under the Act.To this effect, the Authority wishes to remind Muvi TV and other broadcasting stations to exercise professionalism in order to avoid contravening the law and face consequences.Meanwhile, the public may wish to know that Muvi TV has since been summoned to appear before the Authority to attend to specific concerns.Josephine MapomaBOARD SECRETARY/ DIRECTOR GENERALINDEPENDENT BROADCASTING AUTHORITY (IBA)
