Zambia progressing toward digital migration

Zambia’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services announced that the government has put in measures and a policy for the country to meet the digital migration deadline set by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

“Zambia is on course to migrating from analogue to digital. The delay has been that my ministry had to re-advertise the tenders in the migration processes,” said Chanda Kasolo, Permanent Secretary (PS) of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services.

He however added that the general public does not understand digital migration and has therefore heightened the role of community radio and television stations in the country for disseminating information on migration process.
