Muvi sorry, back on air

THE Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) has lifted the suspension of Muvi Television broadcasting licence following an admission by the station that it flouted editorial policy.
IBA board chairperson Justin Mutale said in a statement yesterday that Muvi Television rendered an apology and admitted that there was flouting of in-house editorial policy by some of its members of staff resulting in unfair and unbalanced content during the election period.
“Muvi TV further regretted any harm and embarrassment the misconduct may have caused and rendered its unconditional apology to the IBA board,” Brigadier-General Mutale said.
Gen Mutale said Muvi Television has assured the IBA board that the station will strive to ensure professional conduct and ethical broadcast practices.
The IBA board suspended Muvi TV broadcasting licence on August 22, on the basis of contravening the IBA Act.
Muvi TV then went to court to seek an injunction but the case was dismissed by the High Court.
