Zambia’s Independent Broadcasting Authority suspends licenses
Zambia’s Independent Broadcasting Authority has suspended broadcasting licenses of three privately owned radio stations.
It’s believed the three stations were unprofessional during the fiercely contested 11 August presidential elections.
According to the broadcaster -their coverage posed a risk to national peace and stability.
The opposition has launched court action to challenge President Edgar Lungu’s re-election, alleging the poll was rigged.
The electoral commission insists that he defeated Hakainde Hichilema in a free and fair contest.
Hichilema says the commission does not implement changes.
