Chief Asks Media to be Responsible
Written by Christopher Sande
Concerned by the political standoff in the country, Senior Chief Malemia of Nsanje has asked media houses to promote peace and co-existence among different tribes so that communities can live in unity.
He said on Wednesday when minister of information toured Nyanthepa and Gaka community radio stations in the district that the stations have been so instrumental in promoting peace and development.
“As a country, we have never seen war, so let us avoid this hate and preach togetherness,” he said.
Information minister, Mark Botomani, said community radios are crucial in sensitizing and promoting development be it on education, health, agriculture and disaster preparedness.
He then urged community radio stations in Malawi spearhead cultural diversity and promote tolerance among people of different tribes.
Director of Gaka FM, Mr. Gizex Gizai, told the minister that despite lack of computers, reliable mode of transport, inadequate training to workers and others, they are trying their best to promote good practices and encouraging people to take part in development.
