Prime TV suspension lifted in Zambia

The Independent Broadcasting Authority has lifted the suspension of Prime Television, effective immediately. 

The ban was enforced ‘exhibiting unprofessional elements in its broadcasting through unbalanced coverage, opinionated news, material likely to incite violence and use of derogatory language.’ 

IBA Board Secretary, Josephine Mapoma has confirmed in a statement, saying the decision to lift the suspension follows a successful appeal by the station, made to the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services.
