Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The Patriotic Front has threatened to shut down Prime Television, a private owned Lusaka based media house accusing it of being insensitive.

PF Member of Central Committee Jean Kapata who is also Lands Minister sounded the warning after the television station aired a story of a woman saying the country deserves better than a drunkard president.

The woman who is shown clad in a Seventh Day Adventist atire goes on to say Zambia needs an intelligent president.

But Kapata says Prime Television has gone to far giving space to people who are insulting the President.

  2. I wonder for example as to how often President Donald Trump is “insulted” by American TV Stations and other International Media houses probably including our own ZNBC, Zambia Daily Mail, Times of Zambia, Daily Nation etc… and yet he has the power and resources to handle them!

  3. This is democracy madam. The woman has her own opinion on people who drink heavily and are ruling a country. It is not an insult when you drink to a certain dangerous levels and you are a ruler. The question is how would a drunkard rule? You PF members constitute truth with insult. May be you would say that somebody was demeaning the President but not to say that she insulted. Even then,by so saying it would mean that you are just protecting the drunkard.The truth is that the woman has a certain standard of the character for a President. She is free to set those standards since she is one of the employers for Presidents through her vote. Jean Kapata, if you have set no standards for the President you vote for to rule you , that is your problem therefore do not use your position to give threats of closure of this and that. For as long as you exhibit your ignorance, how many media houses would you close?
