Radio Macha says The Post is Unprofessional

A community radio station Radio Macha in Choma has accused The Post Newspapers of unprofessional conduct after the PF aligned private newspaper published an article on Monday saying opposition United Party for National Development leader Hakainde Hichilema was blocked and attempted to pay Kr 4,000 to feature on a live interview.

Radio Macha station manager Mastone Moonze says the article by The Post was not only fabricated but hijacked.

“The opposition leader never said he wanted to pay Kr 4000 to our staff so that he is allowed to go on air but only wanted airtime charges for his interview with us and also Mr Hichilema never said that he wanted to talk about the removal of fuel and Maize subsidies,” he said.

“We find it very unprofessional for the Post journalists/editors to allow such a story which was incomplete to run in their tabloid.
